URS Building (Library@URS)

Library study space and services are located in the URS (Urban and Regional Studies) Building from April 2017 until Autumn 2019. This is to provide a quieter working environment whilst the Library Refurbishment Project gathers pace. Printed materials are still available to borrow from the adjacent Library Building.

The URS Building will be open 24-hours during term-time.
