Access for Researchers and Visitors

Please make an appointment if you would like to visit the library for research purposes (see contact details) and have a need to consult our rare books or manuscripts. Visits can only take place during staffed hours (see above). A virtual tour of the Library is available for tourists. The library is closed for six weeks in May/June each year for the examination period. Visitors will need to press the buzzer at the library entrance for access.

Finding the Library

Access to the Library is via Webb's Court. From the Front Gate, turn left following the path around the Front Court (away from the Chapel). The entrance to Webb's Court is just beyond the Front Court, on the left, under the archways immediately after the Gibbs building. See the map below.
