Superb new library opens in September: Life on campus

A brand new library will open at UWL’s Ealing campus on 1 September. This has been created after input from students as part of the University’s £50 million Future Campus upgrade. The new space will modernise study and borrowing, allowing students to learn quietly on their own or in groups, and to have access to books and other materials 24 hours a day.

Students starting their courses in September will be the first to have access to this new facility, which will support study and research, and improve access to materials for all. There will be a staffed helpdesk located within the library entrance, as well as online help to access the different databases and research tools.

The Students’ Union helped with packing up the library for the move.

The space, which rises from the ground to look out over Heart, will provide:

  • three new floors of library resources, study and PC spaces, plus a new Ground Floor entrance area
  • around 780 study spaces, including single and double carrels
  • a group study pavilion
  • four quiet study rooms
  • over 150 PCs
  • three PC training labs
  • two kilometres of book shelving
  • one seminar room
  • new self-service technology for checking books in and out

Listen to Tim Wales, Head of Library Services, as he introduces the new library.
