Wednesday 30th November - library will close at 3.00pm

Please note that the library has a planned closure of 3.00pm on Wednesday 30th November.

This is to enable arrangements for the University's Foundation Day. This year is the 175th anniversary of the University and also coincides with the 75th anniversary of the opening of Senate House (1936) and the completion of the refurbishment of the Senate House Libraries. Linking these significant milestones together the University plans to create an event that showcases our history, our standing, our vision and our people.

As part of Foundation Day celebrations Honorary degrees will be conferred by the Chancellor, HRH The Princess Royal, on the following eminent individuals:

Sir Keith Ajegbo, education consultant, Doctor of Literature (Education)
William Kentridge, artist, Doctor of Literature
Mary Quant OBE, fashion designer, Doctor of Literature
Dame Alison Richard, former Vice-Chancellor, Cambridge University, Doctor of Laws
Andrew Ritchie, inventor, Doctor of Science (Engineering)
Sir Magdi Yacoub, professor of cardiothoracic surgery, Doctor of Science (Medicine)

Please note that some services may also be affected by strike action, and we recommend checking in advance of your visit.
