Opening Times for Libraries

Want to study on campus at a time that suits you? Our libraries have extended opening times to help you do this.

Staffed opening means we have staff on hand to help you at our Service Desks during the times stated.

Outside the staffed opening times the buildings are open for you to access as detailed, but there are no Library staff at the Service Desks to help you. Don't forget though, if you have a query you can ring our 24 hour helpline 01785 35 3700, visit our comprehensive Library resources page, or view our ASK us FAQ page.  You can also submit your own questions through this page.

Access to the libraries is by swipe card entry system at all times.  Please remember you must bring your student card with you in order to gain access, and to use the facilities such as self-service book machines and MFD printers.
