Library facilities

How do you prefer to study?  Our main library has study zones to suit all tastes, whether you want to work alone, in groups, in silence or with some background noise.  

The main library also has long opening hours - it's open until 2:30am in semester time and 24 hours a day during exams, so if you prefer to burn the midnight oil then we've got you covered.

When you need to take a break, we have a cafe to keep you going and special laptop lockers where you can charge your laptop while it is being safely stored.  

If you're studying Art & Design, Medicine or Nursing, we have specialist libraries in different locations:

  • Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design Library
  • Robertson Trust Library at Ninewells, which is open 24 hours
  • Nursing Library at our Kirkcaldy Campus, Fife

Students of all subjects can use any library and stock can be requested online and transferred for pickup at your ‘home’ library.  We also have an extensive collection of ebooks and online resources.

The library is awesome. It is a very good learning environment with the silent zone, quiet zone and group study areas, and there’s always a place to meet friends. It’s a very social and interactive space if you want that, but you can also be by yourself and really focus on your studies. The library itself has so many opportunities and facilities.
