Works will soon begin on a £250k refurbishment of the Headingley Library. The ground floor and entrance area will be undergoing a significant transformation in terms of the layout and the facilities and furniture provided, creating a more effective and inspiring learning and study environment for our students.

The works will begin mid-July and will make use of a new design for the open plan space which will help to maximise seating capacity and improve students’ access to the library's services and facilities. The project will see the creation of new Library and Student IT advice areas which will allow students to get help quickly and easily, as well as new one-to-one consultation spaces for more in-depth advice.

The works will also include the provision of new reception counters for each of the library’s core services, bespoke furniture and redecoration of the walls and flooring, to create a brighter and more attractive study environment.

The works will be phased out over a six-week period, completing in September 2018.
