Students studying in library

Library Services

You will find the beautiful old Tate Library reading room and an open study area on the ground floor, and our bright and modern first floor is a flexible study space arranged for you to work in a way that suits you.

Bookable study rooms let you work together on projects and presentations, while you will also find spaces to work in silence or quietly with others.

The library has wi-fi and lots of power points on both floors for you to use your tablets, laptops, and other mobile devices. There are PCs and networked full-colour printer-copiers for producing your work.

A resource room with adjustable working space and a computer fitted with assistive software is available for students needing greater accessibility, and a dedicated Student Support Librarian is on hand to assist you with any study needs you may have.
