Bill Bryson Library 24/7 Opening Hours

(27 September 2019)

For the 2019/20 academic year, the Bill Bryson Library will be open 24/7 for 35 weeks, including every week of term time plus the Easter vacation. We have listened to student feedback and, in response to a Students' Union campaign to increase opening hours, are investing in this provision. As part of the increased opening, service hours will also change with library staff on duty until 10pm daily. Overnight services will be provided by Customer Services Assistants. Details of service hours can be found here.

As part of the increased 24/7 opening hours we support students in pursuing a healthy work-life balance and the extra 24/7 provision will enable students to plan their work across the year and at times which suit them best. Information about wellbeing and night time safety can be found here
