Opening hours

Following the advice from the Government on dealing with the spread of Coronavirus, our University libraries are now closed.

During this time staff are not available to help in person but the online Library is open and is full of resources to help you with your studies.

You can get help with library services through online library chat (available 10am to 4pm on weekdays and Sundays) or you can access the virtual guide. Any library books you have out now will be auto-renewed so you do not need to come in to renew them.

We will continue to update you as and when more information becomes available. Please visit our Coronavirus response page for up-to-date guidance and FAQs.
