Community Music students can normally access any library within the University of Westminster to study or to borrow books. Books can be transferred from the Harrow site (where most of the music books are held) to a site where it may be more convenient. We have sites on Marylebone Road, New Cavendish Street, Little Titchfield Street, and next to Northwick Park Hospital in Harrow.
Please note. Because of the current situation, study spaces have to be booked in advanced and there is no direct access to the book collection. Also our book reservation service has been suspended until 1pm 12th March 2021. Further information, including the location of our libraries, is available on the library website: www.westminster.ac.uk/library
