It will, however, be closed from 3pm on Friday 20 December until 8am on Monday 23 December whilst the carpets are cleaned. Students are welcome to use Building 37 as an alternative study space during this time. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.

Please remember that you will need your University ID card to access and leave the building.
