Level 4 – open!

We are pleased to report that the electrical works taking place on Level 4 of Northampton Square Library have finished and you can once again use the floor for silent study.

Please note, on Tuesday 17th July Level 4 will close early at 6.45pm to allow for final testing of the emergency lighting system.

Northampton Square Level 3: closure

To allow for the ongoing structural investigation work, Level 3 of Northampton Square Library will be closed on Tuesday 10th and Wednesday 11th July.

Collaborative study spaces remain available on Level 2 and throughout the University estate.

 

Northampton Square Library – Level 5

Level 5 of the Northampton Square Library will re-open on Friday 6th July.  However, the investigations have slightly overrun and the external contractors still need to carry out some work on Level 5.  As a result, there will be noise and disruption for small periods throughout the day.

Whilst the contractors will try to work around you, they may need you to move to a different study space.

Apologies for any disruption this causes, we have scheduled this work to take place during our quietest period to minimise the inconvenience to you.

Silent study spaces remain available at the Cass Learning Resource Centre, and the Law Libraries.

 

Library Services on 12th July

To allow for a staff development event on Thursday 12th July Library sites will be open for reference and self-service only.

Access on that day will only be available to City University students, staff and registered Library users.

Normal opening hours will apply. Staffed services will resume at 9am on the following day, Friday 13th July.
