Ked Rd Library open until midnight in April

Rated 5/5 (3 people). Log in to rate.

Big news!

We've been working alongside the Library to get longer opening hours for you guys, so next month the Library will be trialling opening until midnight Monday to Thursday, with the exception of bank holidays. From 9pm, the Library operates on a self-service basis.

These hours were popular on the recent Library survey. - It's super important that you take advantage of this and use the library as they will be monitoring use and collecting feedback from users during this trial to inform future patterns of opening

To support the pilot, the Uni Bus service will be running a mini-bus twice an hour from 9:30 to midnight, between the campus and halls of residence. The public bus service also runs until 12:17am, and leaves from the bottom of the driveway at Kedleston Road.

2:11pm on 12 Apr 17 Although quite tokenist, great to see something being done about Library opening hours as this is the only University in the Midlands without a 24 hour Library access! However, for students in the college of Engineering and Technology, the main issue is access to certain software (Revit, for example) that is not available on any of the Library computers. Thus, I have still seen people being frustrated at the early closure of Markeaton Street where the scramble to get onto the few available computers outside lecture rooms is a daily spectacle!

10:55pm on 26 Mar 17 Possibly extending the library opening hours on Friday and the weekend might be better or as well?
