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. As well as our Harrow site (next to Northwick Park Hospital in Harrow), we have sites in central London, on Marylebone Road (opposite Madame Tussauds) and on New Cavendish Street (close to Warren Street or Great Portland Street tube stations).
