New Students' Library Guide

Your introduction to Library services, spaces and resources at the University of Melbourne.

Visit our branches

We have 11 libraries that each specialise in different subject areas. You can visit any library to browse the collections or find a place to study. Think of the library as your office - it's a place set up for you to study, access resources and connect with specialist help.

Opening hours vary throughout the year. Some libraries also have After Hours Study Zones which you can access with your student or staff card.

Check Library opening hours

Find a seat

Use the Find a Study Space page to check how busy your favourite library space is.

This page shows real time information about seating capacity per floor and includes floor plans and descriptions of the spaces. Some library spaces get extremely busy during peak times.

Book a space

Book a project room for group work, recording pod, or computer in our libraries.

The Find a Study Space page lists the bookable resources in each library space, with a link to our booking systems for making reservations.
