Our Campus

This is AUB. A place to shape and build your work; to learn, share, provoke and collaborate.

The Library

Reflecting the core values of the University, the purpose-built library is dedicated to supporting research and creativity in the disciplines of art, design, media and performance by providing high quality information, resources and services.

The Library holds an excellent range of print and online collections and has staff who are happy to help you make the most of these resources. It has a variety of study spaces for independent and group learning. Facilities include loanable MacBooks and laptops, a bookable meeting space, and a silent reading room.

The Library prides itself on its customer focused approach and regularly reviews the services on offer to improve the student experience. It consistently receives high scores in both the in-house and national student surveys which are carried out annually.

As well as supporting our students and staff we also provide access to users from the local community. Find out more about who can use the Library here.
