University Library opening hours
Face masks are no longer mandatory in the Library. We understand that some students and staff will wish to continue to wear a face covering and we support those personal decisions. Please be respectful of staff and students who continue to wear a mask.
Scan in via the turnstiles with your university card to register your attendance whenever the Library is open. If you do not have your university card, you can obtain a temporary pass.
- the Library Coffee Shop operates different opening hours listed on the Catering Services web page. Do not assume the coffee shop is open whenever the Library is.
- When staff are not available, you can still contact us via our online chat services.
- Opening Hours are subject to change at short notice in response to local or national Government restrictions.
Restricted access for SCONUL and external members, and visitors
We regret that, because of the anticipated demand by our students for study spaces, it will not be possible to admit visitors to the Library for a short period.
