Opening hours

In response to circumstances surrounding COVID-19 we are operating a reduced service but are broadening access to spaces and physical collections wherever possible.

Our book collections will re-open for browsing and borrowing on 2 August at Cavendish, Harrow and Marylebone libraries.

Library counters at Cavendish, Harrow and Marylebone will re-open 11:00-3:00 from 16 August.

Our chat service continues to operate 9:00-17:00 Monday-Friday and 11:00-17:00 on Saturdays.

Plans for Regent library will be confirmed shortly.

Library users should continue to request items using our book collection service until browsing re-opens on 2 August.

We continue to offer online support via Library Chat and our online library is open as usual with 24 hour access to a broad range of resources to help you with your studies.

The postal loans service remains in place to provide access to physical resources for those registered with Disability Learning Support.

Any library books you have out now will be auto-renewed so you do not need to come in to return them.
