Locations and opening times

The Hive is a joint University and public library with Worcestershire County Council.

With over 250 PCs and 750 study spaces there is something for everyone. We encourage users to find their space, from group study to silent study. The Hive is a fully accessible building, and access support is available.

Meeting rooms are on Levels 2 -3, and can be used for studying when not booked for an event. Details of how to book group study rooms and study spaces can be found here.

The main library and the askalibrarian helpdesk can be found on Level 3, and journals on Level 4. Food and drink can be purchased at the café on Level 1, and from the vending machines on Level 3.
