New College Library opening hours
Opening hours of the New College Library, 40 George Square, Edinburgh, EH8 9JX
Temporary closure of New College Library and future reopening
Following the Scottish government move to a temporary lockdown, the New College Library is closed until 25 April. Study space is available at the Main Library and a number of other locations. Please see https://www.ed.ac.uk/information-services/students/study-space/study-space-restrictions-guidance-and-support-2020
We continue to run an online enquiry service via Edhelp. Please see www.ed.ac.uk/edhelp
As part of the Scottish Government’s planned route map out of lockdown, it is expected that Edinburgh will move to restriction Level 3 on Monday 26 April. From this date, we expect to be able to reopen all remaining libraries (with the exception of The Scottish Studies Archive and Library), remove barriers to print collections and restart self-issue book machines in order to give University library users self-service access to print collections.
Please see Library Services Update 2020-2021 for current service updates.
New College Library relocation in 2020
New College Library temporarily relocated to 40 George Square in January 2020 to enable essential renovations of the original New College Library building on the Mound.
Please note that access to all libraries is currently restricted to University of Edinburgh Students, Staff and Official Visitors, and NHS Lothian Staff.
