About The McClay Library

The McClay Library is situated in College Park, at the top of Botanic Avenue, flanked by the trees of Botanic Park.

The ground floor brings together a range of facilities to support teaching and research. Here you will find:


An auditorium and training rooms on the ground floor support organised sessions on library and computing resources.

The upper floors contain the Library's main collections in the arts and humanities, the sciences, social sciences and law.

Designed by Boston-based architects Sheply, Bulfinch, Richardson & Abbott, working in association with Belfast architects, Robinson Patterson Partnership, the library opened in July 2009. The building has been named in honour of Sir Allen McClay, a major benefactor of Queen's University and of the Library. Sustainability was a critical factor in the design and construction of the library, in keeping with the University's environmental policy. The building meets the highest environmental standards.
