The Peter Marsh Library is a modern library designed to help you learn in whatever way suits you best. If you’re a night owl you’ll benefit from the 24/7 opening hours during the first and second semesters. If you learn best by discussing ideas, you can book the group study rooms. And if you prefer to just get your head down and work undisturbed, head to the silent study areas.

The Peter Marsh Library has an astonishing number of resources for students – 120,000 print books, 174,000 ebooks and 44,000 print and electronic journals.

We also have a very friendly team of library staff who can help you navigate all that knowledge and find the materials that you need. In 2002 our library was one of the first academic libraries to achieve Customer Service Excellence recognition, and we’ve maintained that level of service. Our students consistently award staff high marks on helpfulness and competence.
