Library and Information Service

Service note: Due to the closure of the Trumpington Street site, you will not be able to visit the Engineering Library between 17:00 on Friday 29 July and 09:00 on Monday 8 August. Please remember our library staff can still be contacted for help and our online spaces will remain open and available.

Visiting the Engineering Library

The library is accessible to members of the University between 09:00 and 17:00 weekdays. If the department has given you card access outside of these times you can use the library beyond these hours and at weekends. Engineering undergraduates have access from 08:00 to 19:00 every day.

To support and protect those working in the library, we ask that everyone wears a face covering and make use of the hand sanitisers and anti-bacterial wipes when using the library spaces. We are not running to full capacity and we encourage everyone to allow people to keep distance if they prefer. Windows will be kept open throughout the day for ventilation reasons.
