Safety Measures


Our priority is to ensure the health and safety of our staff and students. We have worked closely with colleagues from Estates and Health and Safety to put essential safety measures into place.

  • Throughout each day we'll be frequently cleaning high-use areas, such as door handles.
  • One-way systems and other social distancing measures will be in place throughout each library. PicMonkey Image.jpg
  • Hand sanitiser units at entrances and throughout the building. 
  • Areas with printers, PCs and study spaces have antibacterial wipes to clean them before and after use. 
  • Returned books will be quarantined for 72 hours. Note: This will lead to a delay in books being removed from your library account. 
  • Toilets are open with social distancing measures in place.
  • A limited amount of bookable study spaces are available - please do not move the furniture.
  • Staff will be available in the library to help.
