Upcoming changes to McClay opening hours
Up and coming changes to our hours re 24-hour opening and Christmas
Twenty-four Hour Opening
24-Hour Opening will be starting a couple of weeks earlier than usual, on Sunday 19 November. It will run for 4 weeks which takes us up to the Christmas Vacation. As there will be no exams in January, there will be no overnight opening at the start of the New Year.
However, we will be providing an extended period of 24-hour opening in the second semester immediately after Easter, from Wednesday 04 April until Friday 01 June.
Between Christmas and New Year, the McClay will offer study facilities with a limited staff service, from 9 o’clock until 5 o’clock on Wed 27, Thu 28 and Fri 29 December. Unlike previous years, there will be no evening opening on those dates.
Christmas Holiday Hours
In the run-up to Christmas, normal term time hours will operate on Sat 16 and Sunday 17 December (i.e. 02:00 am closure).
Vacation hours will be in place from Monday 18 until Sunday 24 December inclusive.
The University Library will be closed from Sunday 23 December until Monday 01 January inclusive with the exception of the McClay Library’s three days of exceptional opening between Christmas and New Year.
Normal term-time opening (i.e. 08:00 – 02:00) resume on Tuesday 02 January.
