Don’t take our word for it, here’s what some of our students and staff say about us:

“Library staff are very knowledgeable and helpful, consistently going extra mile for students. I always get extra support, respect, and great sense of humour which makes my learning easier and more enjoyable – 5 stars!”

“Good area to work, excellent resources”

“It is a very student friendly environment to study”

“Great work space, I manage to get a lot of assignment work complete and printed off when working in the library.”
