You can check our opening times though please note there are restrictions on the hours when you can enter. Overnight this may mean that you can leave the library but then not get back in again until the following morning - please remember to take your belongings with you.

Saturday - 10.00 – 17.30

Sunday - 11.00 – 18.30

When can't you visit?

External members are not able to visit our library during our exam period. This is to ensure that we have enough study spaces for the increased number of our own students using the library for revision. During this time and no new external library cards will be made.

The closed period for visitors takes place from the start of April until mid-May each year. If you already have a P800 library card in use before the start of this restriction, your card will continue to allow you access during your usual hours of access but you will otherwise have to wait until visitor access resumes in mid-May before visiting our library or getting a library card made.

Have we got what you are looking for? 

Check the library catalogue to see what items we stock in the Kimberlin Library and their availability.

What are the Library regulations?          

Check out our Library regulations - a breach of these regulations by external users could result in access rights permanently withdrawn so please take time to read these before applying to join.
