Your Library

During Libraries Week, we’d like to introduce some new spaces in your Library! The bookable Co-creation Space has just opened and is designed to help students and staff to work together to improve your university experience. We also have the new Breathing Space which is available throughout the day and night. It offers a quiet space for students to manage their wellbeing by taking take time out to relax, re-focus and ultimately be more effective in their studies. Study space Lib 1 is next to Library Café and is now dedicated to study, available 24 hours a day, with the added bonus that hot food is permitted in this area.

View other study spaces across campus, and see more about the Library including accessing books and e-resources, how to get support and more.

Waste and recycling in Leamington and Kenilworth

It’s your responsibility as a tenant to put out your bins at an appropriate time and bring them in after the collection - non-compliance can result in fines. The new 123+ service includes a weekly food waste collection, a bi-monthly recycling collection and garden waste collection, and your refuse bin collection will change from every 2 weeks to every 3 weeks. Find out more about your waste and recycling service, and download the new app to get reminders, advice and more.
