Chemistry Library Summer refurbishment and temporary closure

The Chemistry Library will undergo a programme of refurbishment during the Summer which will deliver:

  • 60 additional study seats
  • Power and data to all new seats
  • New study booths
  • Improved environmental conditions throughout

In order to enable this refurbishment the library will be closed for five weeks from Monday 23 July – extensive ceiling works necessitate this - and will reopen on Wednesday 29 August. During the period of closure Chemistry Library users are advised to plan ahead accordingly and consider use of other nearby study spaces

A limited book retrieval service will operate during the closure period. If you have any questions about the refurbishment or require any additional support during the closure please contact:
