Library spaces are re-opening this autumn. Library staff are on site and online to help you use all the resources needed for your studies.
UAL Libraries will only be open to those staff and students who are currently permitted on to university sites:
- Pre-sessional students
- Students invited back to college for 'Return to Make'
- Continuing postgraduate students
All continuing and new students will be able to visit their college library on teaching days from 19 October 2020.
We have adjusted our services to accommodate social distancing:
- Use our Click and Collect service to log in, search for and reserve a book or DVD. Collect from your College library.
- Book a computer or study space in your College library on your teaching days or on Sundays.
