Postgrads told us through the Library Advisory Group that they wanted the library to stay open longer during Summer break and the SU has fought hard to make sure changes were put in place.
From Monday 4 September, the main Library building will be open from 9am to 7pm from Monday to Friday and from 12pm to 4pm on Saturdays (with even longer hours, 9am to 4pm, on Saturday 16 September). Term-time hours will resume from Monday 2 October.
They'll also be trialling a new closing routine. A closing time of 7pm will mean that's the time library staff start to empty the library building, so you'll be able to use all our facilities until then.
Change doesn't just happen. These wonderful people made it:
Essex Postgrad Students, Josh Gulrajani - VP Education
