Move to Senate House South Block Delayed

The Move – Updated 26th June 2009
Now expected to begin in August.
At its meeting on 23 June, the Senate House Project Board reluctantly took the decision to delay the start of the moves back into the South Block of Senate House. This is because the extensive programme of works to refurbish the building have not yet been fully completed. The moves, which had been scheduled for July 2009, are now expected to begin in August.

The situation is regrettable and the Board is aware of the disruption and frustration it will cause staff, students and colleagues from other universities. However, after a thorough investigation of all the available options, it was decided that a delay in the moves was the best course of action.

The Library will therefore now remain OPEN throughout July, including Saturdays, but it will probably be closed throughout August. Please watch this space for further announcements.

Extra borrowing rights over the Closure period.

Please note that, with immediate effect, Society members will be able to borrow a maximum of six books instead of four, (per Society membership) up until the Library’s last day before the closure period. The normal 4 loan maximum will resume when the Library re-opens.
