Library opening hours

Kingston University library buildings are open for all our learners and the wider community.

When Information Centre help desks are not operational, a 'Study Only' service is provided. This includes help with any issues you might have whilst in the building, such as help with printing, noise feedback or help with borrowing items, but does not include 'Inter library loan' or ‘Desk loan' collection.

** Please note: Knights Park Library and Information Centre will be closed all day on Tuesday 13 February 2024 (Enrichment week) due to essential maintenance work on the atrium lighting. The Library and Information Centre will re-open on Wednesday 14 January. Please borrow any items you require before this date and remember Penrhyn Road Library / Town House is available to all students. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause. **
