24/7 Library Opening from Monday 11th April

24 hour

The Library will be open 24/7 from Monday 11th April until Friday 20th May to provide additional study time as we approach the exam period. Security staff will provide assistance overnight and self service facilities will be available to allow you to borrow and return books during this period.

A normal FirstBus service will be running so remember to check bus times or organise alternative transport before leaving to make your journey home. 

Don’t forget to take regular breaks away from your studies. Costa Coffee will be open 24/7 during this period and two vending machines with water, cold drinks and snacks have also been installed. You’ll find them in the area just to the left as you exit the lift from Level 5 on Level 2a. A water fountain is located on Level 3 near the Sir Ian Wood Building reception.

If you have any questions or comments about 24/7 opening please get in touch with us at library@rgu.ac.uk.
