We hope you all had a lovely winter break and stuffed yourselves silly with lots of tasty treats…but sadly it’s time to face reality again and think about the months ahead. Perhaps you have made some resolutions to eat better, exercise more or possibly to study harder?

Well, the University Library can’t help much with the healthier eating (seriously, we are a bunch of gannets!) but we can give you completely uninterrupted* library access for a whopping 11 weeks!

Monday 18th January (8am) to Friday 18th March (midnight)
Monday 4th April (8am) to Friday 27th May (midnight)

247-library3 (2)







That’s an additional 11 weeks on top of our original proposal – totalling at 27 weeks for 2015/16 academic year!

And you’ve only yourselves to thank! During the 10 weeks of 24/7 in October-December 2015 we saw a total footfall of 6443 students through our library doors and received so many student feedback forms telling us just how much you LOVE 24/7 that we couldn’t say no!

“What a positive change the 24/7 library is I am now able to work at a time suitable to me that meets when I work best.”

 “It helps me study better. It’s a quiet environment. I can concentrate. Today, 22nd, I came here for the first time to study and write an essay. I feel much more confident and feel I have learned something.”

 “Love!!! Love!!! Love!!! Please keep it open! Help me pass my assessments!”
