Lots to celebrate as libraries to open more than ever this exam season

To help students prepare for their exams, the Library is temporarily extending some of its opening hours.

Laidlaw Library will also open exceptionally on a University closure day (Tuesday 18 April).

In response to student feedback, Edward Boyle Library will be open until midnight on Friday nights from 21 April until 26 May.

Laidlaw Library will be open 24 hours for 5 weeks starting 1 May.

Health Sciences Library normally has longer opening hours in the summer term to help students in the Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health prepare for their exams. This will now include the 2 weeks beginning 27 March, with opening hours Monday-Thursday extended until midnight.

All the libraries will be open until 5pm on Maundy Thursday (13 April), a day where the rest of the University closes at 12:30pm. 

Laidlaw Library will be open exceptionally 9am-5pm on the Tuesday (18 April) after Easter Sunday, a day when the rest of the University is closed. This has been specially organised to help students prepare for their exams, as the Easter holiday falls unusually close to the start of the new term this year.
