Welcome back on campus to all Library Clients

Physical access to our eight campus libraries is now reinstated to all our Library clients including Alumni, community members and reciprocal borrowers.

Due to COVID restrictions easing, it is no longer necessary to tap or swipe into our libraries with a current Western ID card. During Library opening hours the doors will now automatically open on approach.

We look forward to seeing all Library clients back on campus.

Please be aware opening hours or access may be subject to change at short notice in line with government restrictions and university advice. We will do our best to communicate changes quickly through the Library website news and social media channels.

QR Code Check In

Before entering the Library, please remember to check in using the QR code at the Library entrance. If you do not have a QR code enabled phone, look for the short web address on the entrance signage and check in via a device browser such as Google Chrome, Safari or FireFox etc.
