The new Clifton Library entrance

Work has reached completion on the creation of a stunning new entrance for Clifton Library. The redevelopment sees the culmination of two years of refurbishment works which have transformed the library into a bright and spacious place, putting us at the very heart of the campus.

From its position adjacent to the Pavilion building, a new covered walkway will enhance connectivity to the heart of the campus. Changes to the internal layout to enhance library services, which include relocation of the Information Desk into the entrance, ensure that you will get a warm welcome and help is always on hand.

One of the first things you will notice is improved access to Level 1 via a new internal staircase and lobby, making it quick and easy to access our quiet and silent study space on that level. You will also find easy routes in to the collaborative and social spaces, as well as the silent study space available on Level 0.

This will also be a hub for academic and research support, with improved consultation space for the Learning and Teaching and Library Research Teams.

Students have already told us how much they value the study environment at Clifton Library.

One said: "The library staff have been very helpful and friendly making this a most brilliant atmosphere to study in. No place else I would rather study on campus. Staff bend over backwards to help. No problem have been beyond them."

"The best thing, without doubt, about studying from Clifton Campus's library is its staff," added another.

"Always friendly, they go above and beyond to help students with finding books, advising on where to work when building work has been disruptive, and technology issues, amongst others. It is a pleasure to study here because of them."

We are pleased that our staff are always on hand to help you make the best of our facilities and services, even during the building work.

We look forward to welcoming you to the new and improved Clifton Library.
