Hartley library, located on Highfield Campus, will be open 24 hours a day except it will close at midnight on Saturdays and open again on Sunday at 9am.

The new, temporary, opening times are feasible due to the Hartley Library staff being successful in their bid for funding from the University’s Education Enhancement Fund.

The University have said that they are making these changes because students asked for it.

VP Education, David Mendoza-Wolfson who campaigned for a 24 hour library said:

The library usage survey showed that most students wanted extended opening hours.
