The designated slot for ID pick-up is Thursday 17 September 2020 between 11:30 – 15:30 by order of Surname.  This takes place in the Octagon, Queen’s Building.

Library Tours

The Library usually runs tours and drop-in sessions for new students.  Due to the current situation, information on using the library and the wide variety of resources available as well as the different types of study spaces that you can use is currently available online.  Details on whether tours will be available will be confirmed in due course.  Please see the Library’s new student pages for further information.
