Hartley Library Phase 2 Refurbishment Summer 2017

Published: 30 March 2017

Hartley Library Phase 2 refurbishment begins on 12 June 2017 and will complete in late September.

Works will affect all levels of the library apart from Level 3 and will involve some noise and disruption. We will provide advance notice of noisy works wherever possible together with information about alternative quieter space for study.

The refurbishment will:

  • Provide new quiet study spaces in two areas of Level 1 - the area to the right of the main staircase and around to the far right-hand corner will be refurbished. In the far left-hand corner, walls will be removed to create a new, concentrated study area with 40+ spaces. Power will be supplied to desktops throughout.
  • Refurbish the Assistive Technology Service room on Level 2 - this room will be redecorated and completely refurnished
  • Introduce the popular blue study booths to Level 4 - the area at the top of the main staircase will be completely refurbished including 100+ study spaces, including power to the desk tops
  • Create and improve bookable Group Study Rooms on Levels 4 and 5 - a new group study room is being created on Level 4 and there will be a refurbished quiet study area on Level 5 (south)
  • Refurbish Training Rooms 4075 and 4077 as more flexible, higher specification teaching & learning spaces in the Hartley Library

 Apologies for any inconvenience caused during these important works to enhance and upgrade the library.
