Q. I am an online student but I want to visit the Library in person. Am I allowed, and can I use the resources?
Yes, it is possible to attend the University of Essex Library in Colchester in person, however, services are currently limited due to COVID-19 restrictions.
Study spaces are available in the Library Reading Room and Postgraduate Study Room on a pre booking system. You will need to use your University of Essex email address (@essex.ac.uk) to use this service.
Library staff are available at the Helpdesk to assist with queries and to monitor study spaces.
The majority of items required for module reading will be available online through our reading list system/Moodle.
Please note that you will not be able to borrow or reserve books from the Library.
