The modern, eco-friendly library represents a significant investment in the future of all our students. The building, in the centre of the campus, is designed to be conducive to study and houses a wide range of learning resources and services.
A computer controlled natural ventilation system and automatic lighting that responds to the light levels outside makes the library an environmentally friendly addition to the University. It is also home to the Engineering Design Centre (EDC) and Kaldi Café.
The library offers access to around 41,000 books, 1,250 print and electronic journals and a number of online databases. Study facilities include group study rooms and a silent study room. Sessions on using the library's resources are provided to all first year students. Refresher sessions are held for final year students to assist them with their dissertations. Staff on the enquiry desk can help you find information for your coursework or dissertations and show you how to use electronic journals, books and databases.
The building has many open access computers and a wireless local area network to allow users to access the university network.
