Using the Library – Edinburgh Campus – September 2021

We’re pleased to say that our Edinburgh Campus Library is now open for students and staff, every day, 7 days a week.
The study spaces are open on the basis of Scottish Government and University guidelines for 1m social distancing and the safe management of access to spaces and resources, maximum occupancy and face masks.

Study spaces
Study spaces must be booked in advance. 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.

Please 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.

There are over 300 bookable spaces and a small number of individual study rooms, We don’t have any group study spaces available at the moment. Please see the seating plans below.

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.
Unfortunately, we can’t 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.

Face coverings
Face coverings are still essential at all times when you’re coming into the Library building, when you’re moving about the building and when you are sat at your seat studying.

Borrowing Books
The bookshelves are now open for browsing. Please select a book from the shelves and take it to the Self Service Kiosk near the Library Service Desk. We are no longer offering our Click and Collect service but you can Request and Reserve books that are out on loan to another student – check Discovery and look for the Request option.

Opening hours
Monday to Friday 8:30am – 8:30pm Saturday and Sunday 9:45am – 8:15pm

Please check the website and social media for opening hours and any last minute changes
