Vacation borrowing

During the university vacations,  borrowing arrangements may differ to those in term time, to enable you to borrow books over a longer period to cover the dates during which the libraries are closed.

Winter break (including Christmas and New Year)

A longer loan may apply to cover the dates our library enquiry services are closed - 25 December 2021 to Monday 3 January 2022 inclusive. 

Spring break (including Easter weekend)

A longer loan may apply to cover the our library enquiry services are closed - Friday 15 April 2022 to Monday 18 April 2022 inclusive.

Summer break

There will be no summer vacation extension on student and staff loans as all lending copies of books and DVDs are now One Week Loans - with automatic renewals every 7 days unless an item has been reserved by someone else. 

If you are an external or subscription library member, normal loan periods will apply, with no extension for the summer vacation. You can renew your items once, via My Account on the Library Catalogue. Automatic renewals will not apply for external and subscription members.
