The Library at Queen’s comprises three distinct and stunning reading rooms from different eras in history. The unique blend of old and new styles makes it a truly special place to study.
You can choose to work in the 19th century Lower Library or be inspired by the stunning 17th century Upper Library, widely regarded as one of the most beautiful reading rooms in Oxford (and the wider world). In Spring 2017 the New Library, situated underneath the Provost’s Garden, was opened, providing a light-filled space befitting the 21st century.
We are responsive to student requirements and our large and constantly changing lending collection of 50,000 books reflects this. Students also have access to a diverse range of electronic resources. Combined with our generous lending policies, the College library is the starting point for your access to Oxford’s world renowned library service.
The friendly library team are on hand during staffed hours to answer your enquiries and help you get the best out of our resources. New readers may also find the Bodleian Libraries introductory webpages useful, as a guide to using resources across Oxford more widely.
