Locations and Opening Hours: About


As you will be aware, the Government has instructed all schools and colleges to close to help limit the spread of Covid-19. All our libraries are therefore currently closed. 


If you need help or support, you can contact a member of the library team by email: or by telephone: 03333 222 444.

We will aim to respond to any queries as soon as possible.

Standard Opening Hours

Please check opening times by choosing your campus on the tabs above. 


Standard opening hours are:

Monday - Thursday 8.30 - 16.30

Friday 8.30 - 16.00

Vacation opening hours vary, so you may want to phone the library to check it is open before you set out.


Using our libraries:

You are welcome to use any College Library (except at City Labs which is too small for anyone not doing a course there), but you will need your ID card with you. Please note UCEN students only at Nicholls and Openshaw HE libraries, but anyone may use the main libraries at these campuses.
