General facilities and services FAQs

Both our Libraries remain open Monday - Friday 09:00 - 21:00 and Saturday - Sunday 11:00 - 17:00. However, Study space bookings are only for students who are legally allowed to come onto campus:

• studying on a designated course 
• without alternative access to broadband or a PC/laptop
• without adequate study facilities at home

Staff and students should continue to use online resources and services where possible. Please contact us if you have any queries about accessing Library services or resources.

It is recommended that you have a lateral flow test before coming onto campus. Further information about these is on the University's Covid-19 microsite. Please follow the guidance on hands, space and face whilst on campus and wear your face covering at all times, including whilst studying.

For larger deliveries, please complete the Request to Receive Large Deliveries form, providing 48 hours’ notice where possible. You will need to attend site to receive your goods in person. Our Security team can then assist by managing building access.

Outgoing mail is franked and posted from our City Campus mail room on a weekly basis. Drop-off or collection services from both campuses can be requested for this service. 

Incoming mail is being sorted ready for collection from mail rooms on both campuses. Your service or school is requested to nominate a colleague to collect your area’s mail from the relevant campus mail room. You can request a time slot for the collection of mail using the Mail Room Booking form
