Campus & Community Facilities

University Library

Located at the heart of the campus, you can’t miss the striking green glass Library tower. There are four floors of books and journals, computers and study space for you to make use of.

The University Library is open to all students and staff, including those studying remotely from the campus. You have full access to the Library, online resources and borrowing facilities throughout your time studying. Some Library services are also available for external members of the local and wider community.

If you are planning to visit the Library, please check to see if there are any Covid-19 restrictions before you travel. These may include reduced opening hours, study space bookings, Click & Collect services, social distancing, and the wearing of face coverings. You are expected to abide by all Covid-19 restrictions and guidance from staff at all times whilst in the Library.

On campus the Library is located within the Sir Ian Wood Building. The Library tower is equipped with PCs, study desks, printers and WiFi and has desktop power for charging personal devices. There’s also a large range of print books and journals and friendly staff on hand to assist with your enquiries. The layout of the Library is aimed towards creating a quiet study environment where individuals can work on their assignments without distraction. There are a couple of small bookable group rooms, but students looking for more informal study or group space should try the Georgina Scott Sutherland Learning Centre located with the Aberdeen Business School building.

Many Library resources are available online including ebooks, journal articles, reports, databases and more. The majority of these can be accessed 24/7 from wherever you are in the world using just your RGU username and password. We’ve consulted with academic staff to ensure that Library online and print resources are the right ones for your course.

The team can also support you with database searching, referencing, Refworks and anything elase Library related that you need help with. You can contact the team by phone, email, Twitter, Facebook and there’s also an out of hours chat service when the Library is closed. It’s easy to get in touch, so just let us know how we can help:
