Visiting the library

The Library serves members of Newnham College and the wider academic community. It is open for current members of Newnham College 6.30am – 1.45am daily (including weekends). It is staffed from 9am – 1pm and 2pm – 5pm Monday to Friday. 

Our Library Guide contains more information about Newnham College Library facilities, finding books in the library, and library rules and borrowing regulations. Pick up a print copy from the Library office or at the catalogue terminals. Please visit our Accessibility page for more information about the Library space and access arrangements.

Guests of Newnham College members may only be admitted by arrangement with library staff, and during staff hours. Alumnae of the College are asked to contact Library staff in advance to check arrangements for access. Members of the wider academic community who are not members of the College, and who wish to consult materials held in the Library, must apply for a reader’s appointment by contacting Library staff in advance (Monday-Friday 9am-1pm and 2pm-5pm). Please be aware that space is limited and Library staff may be unable to grant access in every case.
