Library

Library

In 2007, in the shell of a 19th century church on the Blackrock campus, we opened the largest purpose built academic business library in the country. With 20,000 books and 5,000 theses, it extends over two floors with common areas that can accommodate 150 wi-fi users. Students also have access to the James Joyce Library on the Belfield campus and to other UCD branch libraries.

The standard term opening hours can be viewed on the UCD Website, last tab for Blackrock Library. View HERE.

Extended opening hours are in operation during examination periods.
