Remember your card

Remember to bring your card every time you enter and leave the Library

We are here to help

Our staff are available online and in person to answer your questions about using our spaces and resources. 

When your course starts you'll receive a College ID card, use it to enter any of our 7 libraries:

  • Central Library at South Kensington
  • Medical campus libraries at Charing Cross, Chelsea and Westminster, Hammersmith, Royal Brompton and St Mary's hospitals
  • Silwood Park Campus Library

From Autumn 2020, our libraries will be open for socially distanced study and we have introduced comprehensive measures to ensure that you can use our spaces as safely and comfortably as possible.  

You can read about our published current measures at Reopening our study spaces and we’ll adapt them in line with College and government guidance. We'll keep you informed through our website, Twitter and email.

Remember that the library is for everyone - please share the space fairly and respect the Library regulationsAt peak times please use Study Break Cards to take breaks.
