The library on the Penrhyn Road campus provides books, journals, computers and a range of learning environments organised into silent, quiet and group study zones. 

There are seven bookable group study rooms for when you need to work together. The large Learning Cafe serves light snacks and drinks.

A large number of books and journals are also available electronically so you can access them on or off campus. The wireless network in the library means you can work from your laptop or mobile device.

The library has long opening hours with 24 hour opening during key teaching weeks (October to June).

The Penrhyn Road library houses the archives and special collections including major collections relating to the author Iris Murdoch and the theatre critic Sheridan Morley.

Help and information is on hand for all students at help desks. The library's Access Technology Room provides specialist enabling software and equipment.
