Opening hours:

Under the latest government guidance for the national lockdown period, our libraries and some study spaces will remain open for those students who have compelling reasons to come to campus, such as an inadequate study environment at home or for mental health reasons. In these circumstances you will continue to be able book a library study space or use an informal learning space on campus.

We are consolidating the number of library study spaces we have available, as such the Maughan, IoPPN and Wills libraries are currently closed for study space access.

It is expected you will be able to meet many of your needs working remotely, through our webpages, e-resources and LibAnswers services. King’s have provided significant additional funding to ensure we can provide the core texts on your reading lists in ebook format where it is possible to do so.

In line with King’s  Staying safe on Campus  guidance,  all library visits are by bookable slots only.
