Towering arched windows have lent a sense of grandeur to the reading room since Gilman Hall first opened in 1915, even before they were replaced with the more familiar stained glass. “The Hut” originally served as the university’s library, whose stacks stretched five floors up the center of Gilman. Its 19 stained-glass windows, installed in 1930 in memory of original trustee Francis Thompson King, bear the seals of European printers from the 15th and 16th centuries.

The South wing of the HUT is accessible by J-card for graduates students, faculty, and staff affiliated with the Departments of Classics, History of Art, and Near Eastern Studies. They may access reference collections shelved there and reserve the adjacent seminar table for classes that require these collections. To inquire about access to these collections or to reserve the seminar room, please contact Don Juedes or Mack Zalin.

The Center room of the HUT is open to JHU students, faculty and staff for study. It will be closed to the public and unavailable for event bookings for the duration of the MSE Library renovation.

The North wing of the HUT houses the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences Writing Center.
