# 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).

# On campus support

We have had to make some changes to how we operate to ensure our spaces are as safe as possible. Find out how we can support you on campus:

You can access the Library from 8:30am- 5pm Monday to Friday. Please remember to bring your student ID card to borrow books.
