# Library

The Library has a huge range of resources, both electronic and print, to help you study and prepare for assessments. Our study environments range from open spaces (for group work) to a dedicated, silent study room (for private study).

We also have a selection of study skills books, laptops to borrow for use on campus, and our Relax and Recharge section which includes a variety of fiction books and board games for loan.
