University of Nottingham Libraries play a vital role in helping students and staff achieve their learning, teaching and research goals at the University.

Library spaces and services

We offer a wide range of inspiring learning environments in our eight UK libraries. Most libraries provide a combination of silent, quiet and collaborative learning spaces, including bookable study rooms.

Our long opening hours, including 24/7, offer flexibility to choose when you prefer to study.

If you want to use a computer, borrow a laptop or iPad, or get IT help then our libraries are the place for you.  Some of our libraries offer an IT Smart Bar service.
