1,000 study seats, computer clusters and access to science and engineering texts now available

The Edward Boyle Library has now partially re-opened, after phase one of the refurbishment was successfully completed over the summer.

The library has a mix of study spaces spread over all floors of the building.

  • On Level 8 you will find all the science and engineering books in the rolling shelves, along with silent study space and a group work room. The conference room on level 7 is now a group study area.
  • On Level 9 there is a group study area, laptop loans, pick-up area for reserved items and the reception and enquiry desk
  • On Level 10 and 11 are two large computer clusters
  • On Level 12 and 13 are two large silent study areas 

See more details on the Edward Boyle Library floorplan.

Building work will continue in the closed half of the building during the academic year. We will try to minimise the disruption this may cause, but there may be times when noise cannot be avoided.

Watch the screen at the library reception for the latest news on the building work. If you experience any particular difficulties please let library staff know. You can speak to someone on the enquiry desk or email library enquiries.

The refurbishment work will improve the building's infrastructure (heating, lighting, ventilation, power) and allow the development of new facilities to support research.
