McClay Library Expansion Project – October 2018 Update

This is the first of a series of regular updates planned for the 2018-19 academic year which will keep you informed on progress of the McClay Library Phase 3 expansion project. This project will realise a significant number of additional PCs and study seats in the library and involves the following key elements:

  • The courtyard area on the ground floor (behind Borrower Services and Short Loan) is being re-developed to provide over 100 PCs and 9 additional group study rooms.
  • The student lounge on the ground floor will be doubled in size.
  • A new silent study room with 67 seats will be created at the bottom of the atrium
  • Additional study seats and PCs will be added to floors 1 and 3.

The extended facility will be available to students from autumn 2019.

Unfortunately, there will be some unavoidable building noise and disruption to your studies over the months ahead but we will do everything we can to minimize this and to give you plenty of warning should the work threaten to impact on you adversely.

In the meantime, if you have any particular feedback or questions, please contact:
