About the Library

The University of West London Library offers resources, high quality services and professional expertise to enable the effective discovery and use of information and the development of knowledge.

The Library currently operates in two locations. Opened in September 2015, the Paul Hamlyn Library offers 24/7 opening in term time at our campus in Ealing. We also operate a smaller library at the Berkshire Institute of Health in Reading. 


For more about Paul Hamlyn; former Chancellor of the University and for whom our new library is named, see this biographical page.

Our staff are committed to the learning experience and are constantly working toward developing Library services to meet our users' rapidly changing needs. Details of these changes, as they occur can be found in our Latest News section on the website or via our Twitter and Facebook accounts.
