The Sydney Jones and Harold Cohen libraries are now open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. They had previously closed at 11pm on Saturdays and Sundays, while remaining open 24 hours during the weekdays.

The university was the first in the Russell Group to open 24 hours during weekdays and due to high demand, this access has now been extended to include weekends for the first time.

University Librarian, Phil Sykes, said: “This will mean we have the best library opening hours in the Russell Group.”

“The great thing about this is its simplicity; students don’t have to remember a timetable of opening hours – we just don’t close!”
