Study rooms and zones

Due to an Estates ventilation improvement project, certain spaces on the ground and first floors of Aldgate Library will not be accessible at the start of term in September 2021.

  • We have temporarily moved print journal titles (January 2021 to present) to an area near the Library Information Desk on the ground floor. Remember that all journals are reference only so please return them to the Desk after use.
  • If you would like earlier journal issues, DVDs, CDs or any books from our Reading for Pleasure collection, please ask staff at the Library Information desk for help or email library@londonmet.ac.uk
  • Laptop locker loans are unavailable from Aldgate Library. You can borrow one from Holloway Campus but it will need to be returned to Holloway lockers at the end of the loan period
  • Study rooms at Aldgate Library are also unavailable during this essential ventilation upgrade project.
