Opening hours

Temporarily restricted library opening hours 

Library opening hours have been restricted during social distancing.  You can always find our current opening hours on the library website.  All online library services are available 24/7 and we have obtained access to an extended collection of ebooks so that you can read much more of your course materials online without the need to visit the library, if you prefer. 


The Library offers a range of facilities and services within the building.

The Library building is open 24/7 during term-time and for long periods during the vacations.  

Library services and facilities are provided variously by Library staff, IT Helpers in purple t-shirts offering IT support who are managed by Information Services, and Coffee Shop staff who are managed by Catering Services.  IT Helpers usually work later than Library staff to provide printing and IT assistance late into the night. The Library Coffee shop does not open as late as the library building but vending machines offer hot and cold drinks and snacks 24/7 and water fountains are always available for you to refresh yourself and refill water bottles.
