The Ussher Library & Kinsella Hall will Re-open on Tuesday, June 6th

We are pleased to advise you that the current phase of essential works in the Ussher Library basement has been completed ahead of schedule and that the building will reopen to staff and students at 09:30 on Tuesday 6th June.

Readers will once again have direct access to book collections and can use Kinsella Hall for late evening and overnight study. Extended opening will cease in the Hamilton Library from Tuesday 6th June, marking a return to normal summer opening hours. See our opening hours page for further details.

The next phase of essential works in the Ussher Library basement will commence on Tuesday 6th June for a period of approximately 16 weeks. This is to enable the construction of the Interim Research Collections Study Centre to ensure continuity of services as the Old Library Redevelopment Project progresses. 

The Ussher Library will remain open throughout the construction phase, but we do anticipate some intermittent noise disruption. Alternative quiet study spaces will be available in the Berkeley, Lecky and Hamilton libraries. There will be no direct impact on Kinsella Hall as noisy works will not take place during evening and overnight periods.    

All materials held in the Ussher Library will be accessible to readers throughout the construction works.

Readers will be kept up-to-date on developments via the Library website, physical signage and social media channels.

We apologise for any inconvenience the works may cause.
