Staffordshire University Libraries: Welcome

Library opening as lockdown eases

female student siting on floor studying using a laStaffordshire University’s library services will be accessible to the following students according to the current government guidelines:

  • Students whose courses have resumed on-campus, face-to-face delivery
  • On an exceptional basis, students* whose courses have not resumed on-campus, face-to-face delivery, but who require the use of University facilities to access online learning (for example, because they do not have access to appropriate study spaces or facilities in their usual accommodation)  

    *When referring to students, the new government guidance is clear that access applies to individuals who have returned to University-managed and private rented accommodation, as well as commuter students.


Please note that our extended opening hours are now in operation.  Thompson Library: 24/7. Blackheath Lane: 6am-midnight.


Online and click-and-collect library services remain available to all Staffordshire University students.
