About us

Opening hours

We are open to staff, students and visitors 24 hours, 7 days a week during semester, with staffing from 8am-6pm Monday to Friday.

29th April to 7th June 2024 - Visitor restrictions

Visitor access to the Library is restricted during the above exam period due to pressure on study spaces for our students. During this time we are unable to admit any visitors wishing to use our study spaces. Normal access will resume after these dates.


The Library is the home of Library and Learning Services, bringing together the spaces, expertise, and materials that support the University community in their learning, teaching, and research journeys.

We provide our students with plenty of support during their studies, including online searching for Library resources, services for study and development support, and a team who provide disability and neurodiversity support.

We have a large collection of archives and special collections for students, staff and researchers to use and make our research publicly available and reusable through open research.

If you are interested in using our facilities then please see our Visit us page or view our virtual tour.

Please email the Library with any enquiries. To provide feedback on our services you can use our online feedback form. Please check our Library News Blog for updates.
