Research Commons: opening hours update


Research Commons silent reading room

Research Commons houses our Heritage Collections, the Bill Douglas Centre for the History of Cinema and Popular Culture and the Arab World Documentation Unit. Located just a few minutes walk from the Forum, this haven for research is open  7 days a week and also offers  a silent study reading room and bookable study desks for Research Postgraduates. Here’s an update on opening hours at Research Commons for the coming academic year.

Extended term time opening hours at Research Commons will resume from Monday 16th September. From this date the Library will be open from 08.00 – 20.00 Monday – Friday and 10.00 – 18.00 on Saturdays and Sundays during university term time.

After 8PM (6PM at weekends) current University staff and students who wish to continue working later into the evening are invited to move to the 24/7 study space at the Forum Library. This is located just a few minutes’ walk (along Poole Gate road, see map for details) and offers a wide range of study seats, colour/black & white printing and scanning, catering and vending. 

During the vacation periods Research Commons changes its opening hours to 09.00 – 17.30 (weekdays) and 10.00 – 18.00 (weekends). Please ask staff or see our web pages for more information.
