Loud library off-limits

Uni chiefs have warned students that the library’s third floor may be out of bounds next year.

If you thought libraries were meant to be quiet work spaces, think again.

Uni chiefs have warned students that a planned library refurb is likely to overrun and may take place DURING next year’s first term.

You won’t be doing this on the third floor

Students were warned about the potentially disruptive work in an email from librarian Robin Green on 6 March.

“Whilst strategies will be in place to minimise any potential overrun, it may not be possible for all the work to be completed before the end of the summer vacation,” it said.

“If that proves to be the case we will work closely with the contractors to seek to minimise any disruption at the start of the new academic year.”

The disruptions come as part of a £1.54million library makeover, and are expected to mostly affect those working on the third floor.

This will affect anyone studying: Classics, English Literature, Film, French, German, History, Italian, Music, Philosophy, Religion and Theatre.

Books are expected to be relocated to other parts of the library, so students will still have access to them.
