BR library places and spaces, The library at Brampton Road is a light, bright area on the ground floor, specialising in resources for the Arts. The library offers a large collection of books and journals, excellent Wi-Fi, and a mix of group study areas and silent study spaces. Students at Brampton Road can also use the Library at Fusehill Street, with the Learning Gateway at Fusehill St. providing a flexible learning space.

We want our library spaces to feel inclusive, welcoming and considerate of all members of our university community. To this end, we ask our users to check out this page of ways you can help us achieve this: Library Etiquette
