Using the libraries

Students may visit and borrow from any of UAL's 6 College libraries. You can also visit our 3 Learning Zones at Camberwell, Central Saint Martins and London College of Communication for more creative resources and spaces for group work.

All our libraries have:

  • Self service kiosks for borrowing, renewing and paying fines
  • Space to study in groups or by yourself
  • Staff to help you.
