Term time opening hours will begin on Monday 24 September 2018.
During term-time, library staff are available until 7pm each evening (Monday to Friday) and until 5pm at weekends.
After library staff leave, the library remains open with the assistance of security staff and our team of library student ambassadors.
During the academic year the library will have periods of 24 hour opening. Security staff are on duty overnight during this time but they will not be able to provide support with the use of library facilities and resources during this time.
* Some services are dependent upon the IT network being available and this cannot be fully guaranteed as no IT support will be available.
You must have a valid campus card to gain access or re-entry to the building after 9pm on weekdays and after 5pm at the weekend. If you do not have your card, you will not be able to gain access during these later opening periods. Access is not available to anyone other than Solent students and staff during overnight opening.
Please read our access policy for further information.
