Access & Opening Hours


The library is open to all members of Wadham College automatically, although you must have an induction before you can use the library.

You will need your university card to 'tap in' through the library entrance. If you have forgotten your card, you can press the buzzer to the left of the library entrance door to speak to a member of library staff, but of course they will only be available in office hours.

Please do not let anyone in to the library on your card. They should tap themselves in! 

(Non-members of the college are not allowed into the library except by arrangement with the library staff)

Opening hours

The library is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, throughout the year.

It does close for a few days during the Christmas holiday, and occasionally for maintenance work which would
usually be during a vacation.

Exact dates of any closures are advertised in advance.
