The McClay Library Expansion Project – November 2019 Update

This is the latest in a series of regular updates to keep you informed on progress of the McClay Library Phase 3 expansion project.

This project delivers a significant number of additional PCs and study seats in the library and many of these are now in place: 

  • The courtyard area on the ground floor provides over 100 PCs and 9 additional study rooms (individual and group)  
  • The student lounge on the ground floor has been doubled in size
  • Additional study seats and PCs have been added to floors 1 and 3   

The project is nearing completion with outstanding work in the following areas:

Special Collections

Work on the extension to the Special Collections store is ongoing with access via staircase 1 and the Special Collections Reading Room. As a result, readers consulting Special Collections are currently being relocated to the Special Collections Seminar Room.   

Ground floor atrium area

A new silent study room with 67 seats is being created at the bottom of the atrium (opening December 2019)

While we do our utmost to minimise disruption (and particularly disruptive work will be completed out of hours or carried out as early in the morning as possible), please note that this is a major building project so there may be some background noise. 

If you have any particular feedback or questions, please contact:
