Extended opening hours for New College Library

Pilot funding has been secured to extend New College Library opening hours in 2018.

Students told us that they were finding it hard to access course readings held at New College Library because the library opening hours were more limited than other university library sites. Information Services and the School of Divinity have worked together to secure pilot funding to extend New College Library opening hours in 2018.

  • Starting on Sunday 21 January, New College Library will be open 12:00-17:00 on Sundays.
  • Starting on Monday 9 April, for seven weeks New College Library will be open in the evenings until 22:00, Monday-Thursday.

During evening and weekend hours there will be full access to the Library Hall and Reserve Section, as well as the David Welsh Reading Room. Access to Special Collections will remain as it is currently, 09:00-17:00, Monday-Friday.

Tell us what you think

To maintain these hours a case for the funding to be continued will need to be made. If you would like these extended opening hours to continue:

  • Please use the library during these hours
  • Please share your feedback with us via surveys, feedback forms (available in the library) or directy with library staff.
