Works have recently completed on a £300k refurbishment of the Headingley Library. The ground floor and entrance area have undergone a significant transformation in terms of the layout and the facilities and furniture provided, which has created a more effective and inspiring learning and study environment for our students.

A new open plan design has helped to maximise the seating capacity of the space and has improved students’ access to the library's services and facilities. The works, which began mid-July, have seen the creation of new Library and Student IT advice areas which will allow students to get help quickly and easily, as well as new one-to-one consultation spaces for more in-depth advice.

The project also included the provision of new reception counters for each of the library’s core services, bespoke furniture and redecoration of the walls and flooring, which have created a brighter and more attractive study space. It has also seen of a brand new disability resource area and new student meeting rooms across the ground and first floors.
