About us


Welcome to Loughborough University Library. Here are our quick tips for getting started with using our resources and services. Follow us on Twitter for the latests news and announcements or to ask us any questions. 


The Library building

The University Library is the largest open access study space on campus. Open to all staff and students at the University and home to a Library cafe and a PC Clinic. You need to bring your student ID card with you to access the building as this is how we implement the University's Connect and Protect system.

There is lots of signage both inside and outside the building that will help you navigate the building and ensure it is safe for both yourself and other users. Please make sure you follow any instructions on the signage.

Support from the Library

We have helpful staff who are happy to help you use the Library resources we provide whether you are in the building itself or if you are studying remotely, including academic librarians for each of the schools on campus. Please don’t hesitate to ask for help – there’s no such thing as a silly question. Helping users is the part of our jobs we enjoy most, so make sure you ask and don’t struggle on your own.


The Library provides resources to help you succeed on your programme.
