Templeman West opens in September!

The Templeman Library’s new wing is almost ready! From the start of term we will welcome Library users to use the fantastic new light, airy and comfortable study spaces and services housed here.

What’s different in the Library from September?

There are over 500 new social, quiet and silent study spaces in Templeman West.

You will need to enter the Library through either Templeman West or Templeman East. There will be no internal access between West and East.

The centre of the building will be closed, as the next phase of building work to refurbish the centre begins.

Plan your visit

Although most classmarks haven’t changed location, you’ll need to find out which side of the Library has the resources you need:

New floor numbering

You enter on the Ground Floor, and go up to Floors 1, 2 and 3. This is the same in both Templeman East and Templeman West.
