    The Toi Ohomai libraries have a relaxed and friendly feel. You’re welcome to eat, drink and socialise in our libraries, and there are cafes on site or nearby.

    Friendly librarians are available to help you research your subject area. You can drop in at the Research Desks in the libraries, or make an appointment with your Faculty Librarian.

    The libraries have a number of study rooms and spaces where you can settle in and concentrate on your work. Computers and laptops are available for you to use and the team can help you set up your own devices too. You’ll have free access to the Wi-Fi network while you’re on campus.

    IMPORTANT: Due to renovations, the library in A Block at Windermere has temporarily relocated to M201 until mid-February 2021. You'll still be able to access all of our library services from there and be able to borrow laptops and other equipment, as well as a selection of Two Hour Loan items. 

    You won't have access to browse the library shelves, but if you need any books, please place a reserve on them using the library catalogue and we'll have them available for you to collect from M201.

    If you have any questions, come and see us in M201 or contact us on
