Access to the Library

There are two designated parking spaces for blue badge holders in car park 15 behind the Library building (Building 2 on the Whiteknights campus map), and another just by the Cedars hotel (Building 55).  Parking is extremely limited on campus and a parking permit must be displayed when visiting between 8am and 5pm, Monday to Friday. Blue badge holders can apply for a free parking permit .


The door facing towards the URS Building can be opened using a push button, as can the next set of doors which take you into the Library Foyer. Campus cards are needed to get through the security gates. The gate next to the reception desk is wheelchair accessible. If you require any assistance, alert staff at the Welcome Desk who will be able to manually operate the gate.


There are three lifts serving all the upper floors of the Library. 

Accessible toilets

There are wheelchair accessible toilets on all floors of the Library.
