24-Hour Opening: The McClay Library

The McClay Library is delighted to announce that it will be open 24 hours throughout term-time for the academic year, to provide study space for our Library users.

This is a welcome extension to 24-hour opening, which was previously limited to exam time only.

The Library is committed to providing an excellent customer service. In response to feedback, we have decided to extend our 24-hour opening throughout term-time in the McClay Library.

Providing an exceptional student experience is important to us. Library Services aims to provide a welcoming space for students and staff, so that they can study or complete their research at a time that suits them.

A valid student or staff card is required to ensure access to the building. Full details of the Library’s opening hours and staffed service hours across our branches are available on the Library website.

For times when our students are not on campus, we have a huge number of online resources available.

Your feedback is important to us. We aim to provide a Library space that suits our users' needs and welcome feedback on all aspects of our service.
