Located next to The Keep, the library has fantastic views across the city. It has a diverse collection of over 160,000 items covering most subject areas and provides access to open study spaces, group study rooms, printers, vending machines and much more.
If you have library books out they will auto renew until the end of your course, unless they are requested by someone else. We will send an email with details of the book that needs to be returned so please check your email regularly.
We are running a 'click and collect' service for library books - you place a request on OneSearch and we will send you an email when it is ready for you to collect. We will issue them to your library account so all you need to do is come in and collect your bag of books!
If you need any information or have any questions please visit the Student Enquiry Point.
If you are studying in the evening or at the weekend and have a query please use the Ask a Librarian Service.
See Studying from home for more details, support and guidance.
