Guide to Library and Archive Services During COVID-19: Welcome


Welcome to The Library and Archives Service. In response to circumstances surrounding COVID-19 our services are currently running predominantly online. We provide access to an extensive collection of e-books, e-journals and databases to support your study and research. 

Until 14th May 2021, Cavendish, Harrow and Marylebone libraries will be open for study via Book a Space as follows:

Cavendish and Harrow:

Monday to Friday:  11:00-19:00

Saturday:  11:00-18:00


Monday to Friday:  11:00-21:00

Saturday:  11:00-18:00

Please be aware that the unpredictable nature of the global situation means that these hours are subject to change.

We have friendly and approachable teams based online.  Our online service is staffed by real people; they are the people you meet every day in the library that you visit. 


Borrowing and Returning Books

It is not possible to access our physical collections currently but we are offering a Click and Collect service. Please request the items you need via Library Search

You can now return items (including those from Regent Library) to Cavendish, Harrow and Marylebone libraries.

It's vital that we prioritise the wellbeing of students and staff and minimise the number of people coming onsite wherever possible. For this reason we are preventing anyone from reserving books that are checked out to another user

If you are a completed student, please contact us via Library Chat or to discuss how to return your books.

Please keep an eye on our FAQ and News pages as well as Westminster's coronavirus response page for updates.

If you have any questions please contact us via Library Chat or
