Libraries, study space and computer facilities.

Resources for research are excellent.  The University library exceeds 2.25 million volumes.  The National Library of Scotland – a ‘legal deposit’ library like the British Library in London and the university libraries of Oxford and Cambridge – is just around the corner. [Please note: New College Library will be closed for essential renovations from late December 2019 until June 2021 and the collections will be moved. Read the New College Library announcement for access arrangements].

  • PhD and MPhil students have access 24/7, and can request an allocated desk. 
  • Masters by Research students have shared study space. 
  • All areas have printing/scanning and computer facilities.
