Everyone is welcome in the library, whether you're a member of the University, a visitor from another institution, or a member of the public.
The main Library on Campus West consists of the Morrell, the Fairhurst and the Burton, and we have well over 1,000 single-and-group study spaces across our sites. These are divided into zones for different studying styles, with a blended approach of bookable and non-bookable spaces.
The Library is currently open 24/7 until midnight 3 June
The Morrell Help Desk is open 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday
