Visiting the Campus Library this summer?

Our main entrance will be closed for building work from Friday 30 July, but you can still use our facilities by accessing the building through the accessible entrance on the ground floor.

The building is open 9am-8pm Monday-Thursday, and 9am-5pm Friday-Sunday. You can find the accessible entrance by following the path along the left-hand side of the library building.

Please continue to maintain social distancing whilst entering, moving around and exiting the building. Face coverings must also continue to be worn and one-way routes around the Library should be followed.

On Monday 2 August and Tuesday 3 August there will be some disruption whilst building work takes place on the first floor. This noise is likely to carry throughout the building, so quiet/silent study conditions cannot be guaranteed on those days. Our team will do their best to seat you as far from the noise as possible.

From Monday 28th June 2021, you no longer need to pre-book a space. You still need to sign in at the welcome desk, show your Keele card and wear a face covering. Spaces are limited to Keele University staff and students only. We have individual study rooms, silent study desks and PC desks available on a first come first served basis.
