Library refurbishment work: October

A picture of the second floor of the Library with white hoardings behind the Information Desk. The edges of a group study table and a group study pod are visible.

Work currently focuses on preparing to demolish the old, glass-fronted staircase, now enclosed by hoarding walls.

During October 2016, Library refurbishment work focus on preparing to demolish the old glass-fronted staircase, now enclosed by hoarding walls on all floors. However, all Library services are operating as usual.

Outside the Library, activity focuses within the closed-off contractor area, fitting out new office space. If you’re travelling around this area please be mindful of your surroundings.

As usual, the noisiest work will cease by 10:00am. Please ask Library staff where to find study areas furthest away from current works.

For more details on immediate construction works please see the floor-by-floor work plan and our contractor’s newsletter. See our dedicated Library refurbishment and 2026: TRANSFORM webpages for further details of overall University strategy.
