Thank you for taking the time to complete one of the Library Comment cards.
We get requests from students wanting the library to be open 24/7, and in the last academic year the Library trialled 24/7 opening for the exam period of both semester in response to demand from students. Whilst it was clear that students wanted this, the actual numbers using the library throughout the night was very low, and it was decided not to repeat the 24/7 opening this year. Whilst we haven’t provided 24/7 opening this year, we have increased opening times during the exam period to 08.00-02.00 7-days a week throughout the exam period, and we’re hopeful that this will be established as the opening time for the whole of semester time next year.
There are a number of areas within the University which provide 24/7 study space, and you may find some of these useful.
