Library & Student Services

Welcome to the Library!

Sheila Silver Library at City Campus and Headingley Library are open 24/7, 365 days a year and MyBeckett is where you’ll find your modules, assignments, reading lists, email and timetable plus Library resources for your subject. There's a lot to take in during the first few weeks of university so we've put together a checklist to get you started.
