Now that the College has closed, The Queen’s College Library and the Archive will remain closed to all visitors and readers until further notice.
However, the Library staff, working remotely, will help wherever they can via the Library email, which is being monitored daily.
If the matter is urgent please write directly to the Acting Librarian.
All enquires related to the College Archives should be emailed to the Archivist.
We look forward to welcoming our Old Members back in due course.
Queen's is closed to the public so you may be asked to identify yourself on arrival at the Lodge. If you have a University Alumni Card, you may be asked to present this. If you do not, our Porters may ask you a few questions to help find you on our database. More details on how to apply for a University Alumni Card can be found on our FAQs page.
Alternatively, if you know you are coming in advance, please send the Old Members' Office an email so we can let the Lodge Porters know of your plans.
Visiting the Library
If you spent time in the Library during your time at Queen’s, you will probably have fond memories of your time studying here, perhaps especially of the Upper Library.
We understand that Old Members like to relive their time in the Library and you are welcome to come and visit during staffed hours. For more information on visiting the Library and bringing guests, please view our library access page.
We encourage Old Members to refrain from visiting the Library during Trinity Term, as this is a critical time for our students.
