Library opening hours

See the Getting help from the libraries page for details of library staffed hours.

SHU staff, students and associate members

You will need to bring your SHUcard to gain access. You can borrow and return books and other items using the self-service machines, and manage your loans online using My Library Account. You can also top up your print account online and via the kiosks in the libraries.

Every day of the year 24 hours

Please note that access to Adsetts Library after 7pm is only via the entrance on Arundel Gate.

Forgotten your SHUcard?

If you forget your SHUcard you can obtain a 24 hour library pass from one of the Day Pass Kiosks at the library receptions. Your SHUcard will be blocked until the pass expires. You are limited to five passes each Semester. You can borrow books using your Day Pass at the Helpdesks (ID is required). Passes are issued to students and staff only.
