Accessing the building - Visiting the Library

Please see College's website for directions to the College and plans of the campus. Most of the material you're likely to need is stored in the two libraries on campus according to the following arrangement by subject:

  • Bedford Library - science, social science and history
  • Founder's Library - arts, literature, humanities and music 
  • College Archives - please check the opening hours for Archives

Less frequently used material (including PhD theses, books, journals etc) from all subject areas is stored in the Depository Library. The Depository Library is a closed access store. This means that you need to request items in the Depository Library if you want to use them and they will be made available at Founder's Library for you to pick up.

Bedford library is building 27 marked on the campus plan. Founder's Library is in the Founder's Building (number 1 on the plan) and can be accessed through the archway at the southern end of the South Quadrant. 

Parking on campus is extremely limited during term time, but if you need to drive to the campus to visit the library, please phone 01784434455 and let Security know when you need a guest parking permit.
