The Loughton Campus library will open in its new home on Wednesday 26 July.

The Library and IT Centre, on the first floor of the new building at the Hatfield House campus, will be a modern, stylish, spacious study area accessible over longer hours.

The purpose-built room improves the capacity of the library by a third and also provides IT facilities for the students. The opening hours are being extended to 8.30 am until 11.00 pm every weekday and it will also be open from 10.00 am until 5.00 pm every Saturday.

Tucked away on the first floor there is also space for a snug, where students can relax or practise read-throughs for their next performances.

The current library in Hatfields will close from Wednesday 19 July to allow staff to move the book collection and PCs into the new space. The current Hatfields PC Lab on the ground floor will remain open for the time being so that students can use the PCs and print facilities.
