Pilot Opening Hours

Bedford Library and Luton Library are operating new opening hours on a pilot basis for the academic year 2021 - 2022

Any comments on the opening hours at any point of the year are welcomed please email

Learning Resources offers full access to services during the advertised opening hours. Please check for current availability. At Luton Library and Bedford Library staff are not always on duty as some opening hours are supported by security patrols. Please check if assistance is needed before making a journey 01582 743488.

IT services are occasionally subject to unplanned interruption. Planned interruptions for major work will be publicised locally and will be Twittered to the front page of LRWeb. If you intend to make a journey to use specific IT services, please check in advance to ensure their availability.

Opening hours at each site reflect the demand for services throughout the year subject to cost effectiveness and efficiency. Times vary from campus to campus. Please check LRWeb for changes to hours 

Regular opening hours will be reviewed each year by 30 May prior to the relevant academic year. Any proposed changes will be put to academic staff and students through Student Union representatives, Faculty representatives and BREO.

Requests to vary opening hours are subject to consideration by the University Librarian.
