Access to libraries over the Easter vacation

March 28th, 2022

There will be changes to library opening times leading up to, and during, Easter Vacation.

Extended opening

  • Currently six of our libraries are open until 2am (Sunday – Thursday).
  • From Sunday 3 – Thursday 7 April libraries will stay open until 4am to support students observing Ramadan.
  • From Friday 8 April, all libraries will be in vacation opening hours. Visit the individual library webpage to check before visiting.

Visiting our libraries

  • Libraries will be closed for Easter from Friday 15 – Monday 18 April. Most libraries will be open 9am – 5pm on Tuesday 19 April, with the Music library re-opening on Wednesday 20 April.
  • Extended opening hours will restart for the summer term on Monday 25 April at James Cameron-Gifford Library and Monday 2 May at Djanogly LRC, George Green, Greenfield Medical, Hallward and Business libraries.

Our online resources and support materials will remain available during the closure period.

Your library loans

Library loans can be recalled over Easter Break so it’s best to plan ahead and return any books you no longer need. If your book is requested by someone else you will receive an email with the subject line – ‘Your library loan has not auto-renewed‘. You can also check your library account on NUsearch to see if your book will auto-renew. You will have seven days to return your book before accruing charges.

You can return items to any of our libraries via self-service machines, or the book box outside. If you’re not on campus, you can also return books by post to Hallward Library, however, you will be expected to cover the cost.

Support for students

Whether on campus or studying remotely, Library staff are available to support students accessing resources, information and services they need:
