You need to bring your card with you every time you visit the Library to activate the turnstile at the entrance.

The Library covers five levels of the main building on Torrington Square.

The entrance is on the ground floor and the upper levels can be accessed by stairs or by a lift.

We have a variety of study spaces from silent areas to bookable pods available for group work. You will find more information and can book a Group study pod here.

You can check the availability of study spaces here and at the Library entrance.
