    New library - opening by the start of 2014

    Our brand new library on the Headington Campus will open by the start of 2014.  Extending over six floors this exciting, purpose-built facility will provide a stimulating space in which you can study and research.

    With round the clock access to information resources you’ll also find a great choice of learning spaces - from quiet reading lounges to vibrant cafe, social and group work areas. You’ll be able to use university computers but will also find plenty of mobile friendly areas. 

    You may bump into one of our roving help advisors or choose to visit our Help Zone to get expert advice in locating and using information resources.  Our new Assistive Technology Centre will provide specialist help, IT equipment and software for students with disabilities.  Whether you’re after a space to work on a presentation or a project or just popping in to borrow a book, we’re sure the new library will support your study needs throughout your course.
