24/7 Library Opening





24 hour opening has now begun and the library will be open continuously until 8.00pm on Friday 19th January.

Security staff will be on duty from 10.30pm until 08.00am 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.

Costa will be open from 6.00am until midnight during this period. Outside these hours a Flavia tea and coffee machine will be available at a cost of 50p near reception in the Sir Ian Wood Building.

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.

Please stay safe and make travel plans accordingly. First Aberdeen will be running an overnight bus service from Monday 8th January. Buses will depart from outside the Health & Social Care building at 01.15, 02.15, 03.15 and 04.15. (Please note that this is a free service which will be reviewed following the first week of provision and will continue only if viable. The service will not  run at weekends).

We hope you find these extra opening hours useful and look forward to hearing your feedback.

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.
