Important notice regarding Library Services

In response to changing Welsh Government guidance and University Management decisions in relation to Covid 19, we may need to make changes to our services, sometimes at short notice.  

We will update our webpages regularly with any new information but some delays may be unavoidable. 

Please note that Libraries are only open for the services stipulated at the times stated. 

Please do not visit the library without your University ID Card (or other ID required for card collection, e.g. a passport) and confirmation of your booking where this is required, e.g. for Request and Collect or Study Space bookings.

Please also consult our Current Library Service Operation page for further information on the services that are currently available.

Please check our webpages for details of library building open hours.
