Monday 21st September is the start of Welcome and Induction Week, greeting new and returning students to the academic year, with Semester 2 starting in earnest on Monday 28th September.

The Offsite team, and all of the Library staff, are ready and waiting to help you settle in, and would like to welcome you whether you are a new or returning student.


For those of you who occasionally visit the Library in person, you may have noticed that there is some refurbishment work underway. The second floor of the Library is currently closed, though it is due to re-open soon!

This means that some of the book stock has been temporarily re-shelved and this may result in a very slight delay in sending out books which you have placed on hold. We apologise for this, and will continue to send out books to you as quickly as possible. We will always email your student email if we have any queries about your request, and to confirm when we have sent a book. Please do get in touch if you can’t remember how to log on, or if you have forgotten your password, or if you need a quick refresher on how to check your student email, or indeed if you have any other queries. Our contact details are shown on the Offsite homepage – you can email us, phone us, chat with us or check out our blog.

We’re looking forward to supporting your learning!
