News: building works
We're excited to announce that Level 2 North of the Barr Smith Library is now open for quiet study, with more improvements on the way! Over the next couple of months, you can expect brand new furniture to enhance your study environment, and the return of our collections for easier access to resources.
The Barr Smith Library Level 2 North is currently closed for the next stage in our refurbishments. This upgrade will improve student study spaces, with upgrades including re-carpeting, new paintwork, increased natural light and the creation of new study spaces.
Starting Monday 3 April 2023, the Library will begin its refurbishment of Level 2 of the Barr Smith Library. The first stage of the refurbishment will be in the Reading Room. Please note, there will be no access to the Reading Room from 3 April 2023.
Next week we will be starting the refurbishment of Level 1 North at the Barr Smith Library. This exciting revamp includes a new paint job, new carpet, and the installation of additional power points and study spaces.
Please be aware that the stairs leading down from the Barr Smith Library to the Barr Smith Lawns are currently unavailable until Wednesday 9th January due to building works. More information about the redevelopment of Union House can be found here.
