The list of holidays and other closures will be updated periodically as additional dates are added. Occasionally, unannounced closures may occur due to unforeseen staff absences or inclement weather (call 928-777-6666 to check for campus weather closures). If you are planning a visit to use the Archives, we recommend contacting us in advance so that we can make plans to accommodate your visit.
The Archivist is generally available to answer questions via phone, e-mail or in person during regular business hours (Monday-Friday, 8:30-5:00 during the semester; Monday-Thursday, 8:00-5:30 during the summer).
Our walk-in hours for the reading room are limited to the afternoons in order to make the best use of staff time and resources.
Appointments to use the collections at other times are available, and we encourage you to take advantage of this. Appointments may include morning, evening or weekend times (depending on staff availability).
The Aviation Safety and Security Archives is located in Robertson Aviation Safety Center II (Building 22). Follow the signs for "Robertson Safety Center" as you come onto campus.
The closest parking is immediately in front of the building, however, these spaces are frequently full. The next closest parking is Lot H (across the street), Lot G (in front of the DLC auditorium) or Lot F (behind the DLC auditorium). These parking lots are all designated for parking by permit holders only. Visitor parking permits can be obtained by visiting Campus Safety and Security (located in Building 14).
