24-hour opening, getting home, extra study spaces, exam tips

The library has extended its opening hours and booked additional study spaces in EC Stoner throughout the exam period to help students complete assignments and revision.

The Library can get very busy at exam time, so we remind students that if you are leaving your study space unattended for more than 30 minutes, you should take your belongings with you, so that someone else can use the space.

24 hour opening

Laidlaw Library will be open 24 hours a day from Monday 1 May until Thursday 1 June (closing at midnight on Thursday 1 June) and then open from 08:00 to 19:00 on Friday 2 June.

Edward Boyle Library will be open until midnight every night from Friday 21 April to Friday 26 May.

Check the Library opening times for other libraries, and for opening hours after the exam period.
