The University of Chester has numerous libraries across its different campuses, and all staff and students of the University are welcome to use any of the libraries.

In addition to books, journals, and other resources, all libraries have computers, study areas, and bookable study rooms. Subject-specialist staff are available at all sites to support learning.

Online resources can be accessed through the University Portal and books can be requested for collection from the most convenient site.

Free wifi is available throughout all the libraries and some libraries offer 24/7 access with a University card.

All staff and students can borrow a number of books using their University Card and our RFID self-issue and return services in the Seaborne and Broomhead Libraries and by visiting the issue and return desks at various Health and Social Care Education Centres.


We have libraries at every campus, and opening hours differ in each:


Members of the University may also use other University libraries via the SCONUL Access scheme.
