Library FAQs

When can I visit the library?

Opening times for the Mile End and Whitechapel libraries during Moving-in Weekend and Welcome Week will be confirmed soon.

The Library website has more information on opening times during term-time, as well as details of the library at the West Smithfield campus.

How do I find my way around the library?

Library tours provide an introduction to the collections, facilities and services and are a great way to get started using the library.

Mile End library tours

Tours of the Mile End Library will be available every 30 minutes on the hour and half hour. Limited places are available on each tour, so if all the slots have gone, you will be offered the next available slot. Please check back soon for times.

Whitechapel library tours

Tours will run daily during Welcome Week (16-20 September) from the Whitechapel Library Welcome Desk. No advance booking required. Please check back soon for times.
