Priority Access for University of Glasgow Students: 30 November 2015 – 18 December 2015

Exam time is fast approaching and to try to address the increased demand for study spaces in the Library we are introducing temporary access arrangements, for students from other universities and colleges, until the end of the exam period.From Monday 30th November until Friday 18th December, inclusive, priority access will be given to University of Glasgow students, staff and full library members.  

Students from other UK Universities who use their registration card from their home university to enter the University of Glasgow Library, and school pupil members, will only be able to access the Library after 5pm on weekdays and all day at weekends.  This change also includes students with a SCONUL Reference Only card.

FE College students will not be allowed entry for study purposes, at any time, during this period.

Full SCONUL members, corporate, alumni, members of formal reciprocal schemes and Glasgow School of Art students will not be affected by this change.

This is in response to feedback from our students about pressure on study spaces at exam time.  We hope that our student visitors from other institutions will understand that we need to keep study spaces available for University of Glasgow students during the busy exam period.

If you have any questions or need more information on any of the above please do not hesitate to contact the Library on
