Bert's Goes 24 Hours!
Now that the Shapiro Undergraduate Library (the UGLi) is open 24 hours a day, Bert’s Café in partnership with Central Student Government and University Unions is open 24 hours during those critical study days in the Fall and Winter. Bert’s and the UGLi want to be your study support!
U-M students are bright individuals who can balance school, work, student organizations, and it seems, everything else under the sun. Bert’s and the UGLi want to make it easier for students to operate on their own schedule in order to reach their full potential. If your study style is burning the midnight oil, the Unions will be there for you. If you have a different sleep, work, or study schedule, Bert’s can be your support.
Bert’s Café’s New Hours: Fall/Winter Semesters Only
- Sunday - Wednesday: Open All Night! (24 hours)
- Thursday: Close at 1am
- Friday: 8am - 5pm

If you are visiting Bert’s after 1am we would love to hear suggestions from you on what you’d like to see at Bert’s during those midnight hours! Talk to one of our Bert’s employees or send an e-mail to our Manager, Laura Golze at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Bert’s has a new drink special in order to support and promote the 24 hour program, the Midnight Mocha! Order it as a mystery or ask our Barista what’s in it! Bert’s is also carrying pizza after midnight, just in case you need a midnight snack.
Because Bert’s want to be your study support here are some quick study tips if you are planning on studying into the night:
- Got Sleep? - Remember 7-9 hours is recommended
- Stay Hydrated!
- Eat Brain Foods - yogurt, cheese, cranberries, and protein-rich foods
- Stay Focused - Remove distractions (silence phone, get off Facebook)
- Wrie down study goals!
- Take periodic breaks
- Remember to get up and move.
- And if you need a nap keep it to 10-20 mins!
From the University Unions and the Bert’s Café Team, we wish you happy studies! J
Bert's Café, made possible by the generosity of Bertram Askwith (LSA '31) opened in 2008 to bring students and staff a convenient quality café. Bert's has a friendly, professional staff and offers the inviting atmosphere of the library and the new Bert's Study Lounge! It's the perfect place to study, converse with friends, conduct meetings (we cater!), or simply relax with a cup of hot coffee or a tasty treat.
