What’s open on Campus?

Reading Time: 2 minutes

We’re looking forward to welcoming you back to campus – and we’ve been working really hard to make it possible for you to access as many services, events, and facilities on campus as we can. There’s a few changes and unfortunately not quite everything is fully open yet.

So, we thought we’d give you a run down on what’s open and how things will be working, and as things change we’ll keep you updated.


As lockdown restrictions ease, we’re working hard to safely reopen our Library sites and deliver in-person services. Currently you can:

  • Return books to the main library (Monday – Friday 10 am – 4pm)
  • Order books via click and collect.

Please check the service availability page for regular updates and all the information you need about accessing Library resources.

Alan Gilbert Learning Commons

Some bookable study space is currently available in AGLC. Spaces are available Monday – Friday 10am – 4pm.
