Display space

Do you have photographs, art, poster displays or hobby crafts you would like to exhibit?  We are always on the lookout for new displays and exhibits - anything with a visual appeal that you feel passionately about or think might interest or educate other people.  We are really happy to help you think about what your display might look like, put it up and take it down afterwards. 

The Library is one of the busiest venues of campus and your display will enjoy attractive natural lighting and a high footfall of visitors.  Any student, staff member or person associated with the University can display their work.  If you are thinking about putting together a display we would love to hear from you, so please get in touch.

Details and dimensions of our display boards and cabinets are available as a downloadable pdf guide.

Follow the links below for photographs of recent displays.  Older exhibitions can be found in our archives.
