Special Collections

Welcome to London Metropolitan University's Special Collections

Located on the site of a former Victorian public bath house, our collections constitute a valuable resource for research activity in a number of areas for students, staff and external visitors.
Our opening hours can be found under Library locations and opening hours.


Please be aware our reading room will be hosting guided tours for the Open House Festival 2023 on Friday 15th September (from 10am to 5pm).

Staff and students of the University are welcome to drop into the Special Collections Reading Room during opening hours and without appointment, in order to consult the reference material on the open shelves, and/or for private study.

To book an appointment, Staff and students are to log in using their university credentials. Admission for external visitors is via email consultation and registration.
