Building Works

Building works have now started on the Park side of the Paul Hamlyn Library to deliver a new Postgraduate and International Centre, Sports Hall, and Recycling Centre at St Mary’s Road. These works will continue for the remainder of the 2018-2019 academic year.  Unfortunately, it will not be possible to avoid noise, and library users on the Park Side may find it preferable to study on the Heart Space and Warwick sides of the library.  If you have difficulty finding a suitable study space please speak to a member of library staff. Building works will be restricted to between the hours of  08:00 and 16:00 Monday to Friday and 08:00 to 13:00 on Saturdays. We apologise in advance for any inconvenience that these works will cause.
