Open 24/7, 365

Both Headingley and Sheila Silver Libraries are open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

From 24 April - 26 May you will need your Campus Card to access Sheila Silver Library at all times. At Headingley you can access the Library during the day without it but require it overnight (19:00 - 08:30).

Security staff carry out a card check at 19:00 each night. Only those entitled to use the Library will be allowed to stay.

You will be breaching student regulations if you lend your Card to anyone else.
