Visiting the University Library
24 hour Library opening
The Library will be open 24 hours around the clock from Monday 19 November (8am) to Friday 14 December (7pm).
During this period, the Library is reserved for:
- Roehampton students/staff
- External and Alumni Members
- SCONUL Bands A, B, C
This is one of our busiest times of the year. The pressure on study space and resources means we must prioritise our Roehampton students’ needs during this time.
After the 24 hour period, from Saturday 15 December, we will be in our vacation hours and we’ll be welcoming back:
- Community members
- SCONUL Band R Members
If you are interested in using the library on a more regular basis, we offer membership through four key schemes:
|Bands A, B and C||Band R|
