All of our libraries have their own opening hours and some have after hours study zones which are swipe card access only (your UniMelb ID card is your key to entry). 

These times change throughout the year. Check the Library homepage for the most up-to-date opening hours to help you plan your trip.


 

 

Can I eat and drink in the Library?


Yes, but...
In designated areas odourless items like coffee, bottled water, fruit and chocolate are ok.
Craving a quick, odourless snack? In designated areas, relatively odourless items like bottled water, coffee, fruit and chocolate are okay. 
 
Some areas are zoned as 'Food Free' zones to protect important collections and materials. Each library has its own designated areas, so if in doubt please look for a sign or Ask a Librarian.

 


Anything smelly, greasy or messy like chips, burgers, pizza and fish will need to be eaten outside.

Got something deliciously smelly, greasy or messy? Chips, burgers, pizza and fish will need to be eaten outside. 

Help us to keep the library free of litter:
