Visiting the library

Newnham College Library is open for current members of Newnham College 6.30am – 1.45am daily (including weekends). Our Library Guide contains more information about Newnham College Library facilities, finding books in the library, and library rules and borrowing regulations.

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.

We have been working to make the Library safe, open, and welcoming. Before your visit, please make sure you’ve read our COVID Safe Guidance.
