Your quick guide to taking the Library with you!

As we start to approach Winter Vacation, here’s a helpful reminder of the top 5 things you need to know so that you can take the Library with you, wherever you’ll be for the holidays!

  1. Chat to us! Library staff are on hand to help support you throughout the whole vacation period. Head to Library webpage and use the Live Chat function to speak to a member of staff. Over the Christmas closure days (23 December – 3 January), we’ll be offering remote support every day via email.
  2. We have a wealth of resources available online! Head to to browse our collections, or access material directly from your SurreyLearn module reading list and BibliU bookshelf, 24/7.
  3. Need Academic Skills or Maths and Statistics support over vacation? Head to your dedicated my Learning Development module for 24/7 access to a suite of online study-supportive materials, including videos, tutorials and guidelines. You can also check out other useful resources to help you with your studies here.
  4. Click and Collect / Click and Post services will still be running. For more information, take a look at our Borrowing pages.
  5. Stay up to date with the latest Library news and information, and don’t forget to follow us on social media for updates @surreylib.

We know that many of you will be remaining on campus over the holidays, and the Library will continue to remain open every day for you. Please note: from Thursday 3 December, our opening hours will be slightly different. We’ll be open 8am-1am Monday to Friday, and 10am-10pm at the weekends and on University closure days.

Wherever you’ll be for Winter Vacation, stay safe, look after yourselves and take the Library with you!
