Covid safety

Follow the public health and university guidance – keep your distance, wash your hands regularly and please wear a mask if you can.

Negative test result

Please use the University’s coronavirus testing facilities regularly if you use our study space. Do not come to the Library if you have any symptoms of Covid-19.

Face coverings

Please wear a facemask when you are in library buildings.

One-way system

There is a one-way system in place across all Library buildings. Some staircases are for going up or down only. There may be give-way points and spots where you need to wait to be called forward. Look out for floor stickers and signage to make sure you’re going through the right entrances and exits and the correct staircases.

Self-clean study desks

There are cleaning products near to all study spaces – please clean your space before you study and at the end of your session.

Only use the desk you are assigned.


We’re operating a knock and call system for toilets, so knock before you enter and be sure it’s clear before going in.

Sanitising stations

We’ve made plenty of hand sanitiser available so you can clean your hands regularly. You should sanitise after touching door handles, lift buttons, bannisters and other surfaces.


Staff will be on hand to assist with directing you but if you have any enquiries, please contact us by email or webchat for other enquiries.
