Library 24/7

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 Student 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 10.00pm daily. Overnight services will be provided by Customer Services Assistants. Details of service hours can be found here.
