24/7 Library Opening

24 hour library opening begins on Monday 15th April and will continue until 8.00pm on Friday 17th May.

Security staff will be on duty from 10.30pm until 8.00am and the self-service kiosks and returns machine will be available as usual. If you have any questions during these times, please email library@rgu.ac.uk and we will get back to you as soon as we can.

From 10.00pm – 7.00am a complimentary drink station with coffee, tea and hot chocolate will be available near the SIWB reception area. Microwaves and a kettle will also be available in the Refectory.

Vending machines are available on Level 2a (to the left when exiting the lift).

The usual rules about eating and drinking in the library still apply so we would ask that you don’t bring coffee, tea or snacks into the study areas. Bottled water only please! Free reusable RGU Library water bottles are available from reception.
