This page provides an overview of our year-round opening for our main library: the Morrell, Burton and Fairhurst. Follow our social media channels and News pages to keep up to date - changes to our hours are rare but if anything unexpected happens this is where we'll tell you about it.

The library is usually open 8am to midnight. The exceptions to this are some over the Christmas period when the library closes early or is closed all day, and the Common Assessment Periods at the end of each Semester, when the library opens 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. 

There follows a more detailed breakdown by Semester; please get in touch if you'd like any more information.
