Cambridge University Library


Coats, umbrellas, bags, cases and similar personal belongings should be left in the Locker Room adjacent to the Entrance Hall. Please do not leave valuables unattended in the Locker Room or money in coat pockets - use the lockers provided.

The lockers do not remain closed overnight and are emptied each morning before the Library opens. Items left overnight will be held as lost property at the Reader Services Desk in the Entrance Hall. Please remove your belongings from the lockers before you leave the building.

Small or transparent bags may be brought into the Library on the condition that they may be searched at the exit controls. Bags must be no larger than 25cm x 20cm x 5cm.

If needed, clear plastic bags can be purchased for 20p at the Reader Services Desk.
