The world-class University of Roehampton Library is staffed by a friendly and dedicated team who offer academic, research and study skills workshops, as well as advice on using the wide range of resources available.

As a Roehampton student, you will get to use London's newest university library - one of the best of its kind in the country. Opened in September 2017, it has hundreds of thousands of books, a wide range of computer suites and 1200 study spaces, including private rooms for group work and quiet areas where you can study individually.

The Library has high-speed Wi-Fi throughout and contactless borrowing to make checking out books as easy as possible. The building is fully accessible and has facilities catering for all needs, such as adjustable- height desks and specialist software on all computers. It also has the Walsingham Garden Room and Café, where you can meet people informally.

Our staff are on hand to help you get the most of the Library, from support using the resources to help on using books in your work, such as advice on referencing your essays. Find out more about the academic support we offer.

The Library is open until 9pm in term time and 24 hours a day during certain times of the year so you can study and revise in the building for as long as you need.

The Library is home to our Special Collections, such as the Froebel Archive, Richmal Compton Collection and Ann Hutchinson Guest Collection. It will also houses other specialist collections, such as The Centre for Marian Studies, a collection of resources covering all matters regarding the Virgin Mary, the Queen's Archive, featuring material on authority and governance within the Roman Catholic Church in the UK and the Jewish Resource Centre Collection.
