CU London Libraries

The CU London Libraries are available to all staff and students, and provide access to print and electronic resources, as well as spaces to study. The print collection is largely focused on supporting teaching activities, and includes all materials on module reading lists. We also have background and additional reading materials, as well as a selection of resources to support study and language skills.

We have a wide range of electronic resources, including e-books, e-journals and subscription databases. These support all our courses, and are accessible via Locate or your subject guides.

Information on the new Greenwich campus Library will be provided as soon as possible.
