Library Refurbishment Update

The Library refurbishment continues, following the move of books from the 2nd Floor to the 4th Floor, with the closing of 2nd Floor for refurbishment. As far as possible all books remain accessible. As the project progresses work will begin on the exterior, with access to the building changing over the next few months. Further updates about this will be posted here. 

Starting this week, a temporary walkway will be created to access the Library building. This will allow landscaping work to be undertaken next to the Library entrance. This new walkway (marked on the image in blue) will be slightly further away from the building. This will be used when approaching the Library from the direction of Palmer quad or Whiteknights House. Access from the direction of the URS building remains the same. The area marked in red is where the landscaping work will be taking place which should be completed at the start of May.



Works are continuing which may sometimes involve noise and disruption. You can use the quiet and silent study spaces in the Library@URS building, as well as a variety of alternative study space options across campus. A full guide on the availability of study space across the campus can be seen here: Study space update.

The refurbishment forms part of the University's ambitious 2026: Transform capital investment programme, which focuses on improving campus facilities and supporting the student experience.
