Studying in the Library


The Kings Norton Library is open 24/7 for Cranfield University staff and students. Visitors are welcome during normal office hours, Monday - Thursday 8.30am - 9pm and Friday 8.30am - 5pm.

We have created red, amber and green noise zones in the building:

Silent study areas: The top floor and the reports and archive areas of the ground floor (accessible via the back staircases)
Quiet study area: The first floor 
Group and collaborative working: The PC Hub and Library atrium

If you work in the Library for a long period of time and start to get chilled, you can borrow one of our fleece blankets to warm you up! You can find them in the basket next to the printers on the first floor.

Lost property is collected and stored at the Welcome Desk on the first floor. Please hand in anything that you believe has been mislaid by another student. And of course, ask us if you think you have lost something!
