Using the Library Edinburgh Campus – August 2021

The latest Scottish Government update means that some of the COVID-19 restrictions will be lifted during August. The University is working on plans for next semester and we are hoping that there will more details to follow soon.

Face coverings
Face coverings are still essential when you’re coming into the Library building and when you’re moving about the building. Once you are sat at your seat studying, then it is ok to remove your face covering.  

Study spaces
Please continue to Book a study space through the Student Portal or direct at Resource Booker. In Resource Booker, you can filter to locate a study space with a PC and can filter on available times. Confirm your booking at the Service Desk on arrival at the library – bookings are provisional until confirmed. Study spaces are clearly marked with green YES or red NO and are numbered – see floor plans

The booking of study spaces is likely to continue into next semester. We are looking at whether we can open up group spaces and study rooms, but at the moment it is still individual study only.


ID cards
You must have your HWU ID card to access the Library.
You use your card to swipe in through the entry gates to the Library.
We cannot allow you access to the Library without your card.
If you have lost your card, please contact the Student Service Centre through the student portal.
