Library Refurbishment Project

Originally constructed in 1967, the Library at Lancaster University has been continuously improved having undergone various extensions and refurbishment, the most recent of which being the 2015 renovation of the East and West buildings.

Due to the huge success of its refurbishment, and achievement of a BREEAM Excellent award, the Library has become a popular study space for all to use. Plans are being developed which aim to increase the Library’s capacity. Following staff and student feedback on the first phase of the remodelling, the plans will consider furniture type and study spaces which may be improved and expanded as part of a scheme of continuous improvement.

Feedback about the Library has been extremely positive and these works are scheduled to be carried out over summer and in to the winter period. Benefits of the project are to include installation of a power supply to each study space within the reading room; new space designated for study and new furniture.
