Welcome to your library!

If you’re new to Hallam University this year then we’d like to welcome you to your Library and we look forward to seeing you soon. 

Even if you’re not new to Hallam University this year, we want to let you know what to expect when you visit the library and to help you make the most of each visit. 

Your library is open 24/7/365

Your campus libraries are easy to find and accessible, and for all students to use. We know you may have a lot on so we stay open 24/7 365 days of the year, which gives you the opportunity to study and access resources whenever you want, in a safe and welcoming environment.

Your perfect learning space 

If you’re looking for a place free from distraction or somewhere to work together with friends and course mates then we have the perfect learning space for you.

Your campus libraries offer a wide range of learning spaces, from silent individual study spaces, to collaborative zones where you can book meeting rooms for group work. Find out more here.

Both campus libraries offer PCs and Macs, with a wide range of software, as well as colour and black and white printers.

There are also opportunities to develop your digital skills, get help with maths and stats, access on-demand session recordings and online resources, and receive feedback on your writing drafts.
