Starting May 18th through September 2015, Pleasant St will be closed for construction north of Arlington St. The portion of Pleasant St adjacent to Walter is unaffected, but this means that to access Walter from the Pleasant St side, take East River Road to Arlington St and take a right on Pleasant St.

For current construction and access information, please see the traffic access map on the official UMN maps site.

The primary Metro Transit routes that service the East Bank campus are the 2, 3, 6, 16 and 50. There are also several express routes from the suburbs. The closest bus stop for the Metro Transit routes is the stop at University Ave SE and Pleasant St SE (aka Folwell, Jones and Eddy Halls.) Walter Library is just a short walk south on Pleasant St SE from that stop.
