Cambridge University Library


Essential electrical work is taking place at the UL in early January. This essential maintenance will significantly affect access to the building for staff and library users for the period including 7-13 January. 

Whilst every precaution has been taken to limit its length, including extended shifts for contractors undertaking the electrical work, only limited access and services are feasible on site at this time.  

We are sorry for the disruption this will cause and have worked hard to ensure a limited core set of services can continue supporting access to open stack collections at this time.  

The schedule of works has been agreed with the Library Syndicate as essential.
