Extended Library Hours - Feedback Welcome!

Spring Session Extended Opening Hours

We're pleased to announce that UTS Library will be open for longer hours at the end of this Spring session. UTS students and staff will have access to Library collections and spaces for additional hours between Monday 18 September to Thursday 9 November 2017.

The Library will be open:

7am to 1am daily
Monday 18 September to Thursday 9 November


As previously, students using the Library during the extended hours will have access to the Level 4 kitchen, which will have tea, coffee and hot chocolate available free of charge daily from 10pm. Food is available from vending machines located in the Library foyer.

During the extended hours, the Library will be open for UTS students and staff only.
Non-UTS clients, including alumni and reciprocal institutional memberships, will be able to use the Library during regular opening hours only.

Library Extended Opening Hours Survey

We Appreciate Your Feedback

During previous extended hours, we gathered a large amount of data and feedback from students, which informed us that most left the Library around or before 1am. Additionally, feedback showed that students would like opening hours to be extended on more nights over a longer period of weeks.

In response to these requests, we have decided to extend opening hours every day (including Saturday) for the final eight weeks of this session. The Library will open at 7am and close at 1am seven days a week, including the public holiday on Monday 2nd October.

We understand that some students would prefer the Library to open 24 hours a day and this new model may not meet their needs. We would like to emphasise that we will continue to gather data and feedback which we will use to determine the hours for the Autumn session next year.

Online Chat

You can Chat LIVE! with a Librarian during the extended hours period from:

  • Monday to Thursday: 12pm to 1am
  • Friday: 1pm to 1am
  • Saturday: 6pm to 1am
  • Sunday: 6pm to 1am


Thanks for extending hours.
