The Hive is a fully accessible building, with height adjustable desks and braille signage. The building has step free access and lifts to all levels. Our askalibrarian desk on level 3 has an induction loop facility.
Toilets are located between the main entrance and the café on level 1 and near the lifts on levels 0, 2, 3 and 4.
You can use the meeting rooms when they are not booked for an event. You can also book rooms, group study tables and small spaces.
You can eat and drink in the café and throughout the building, except for Explore the Past on level 2, and on level 4.
You’re welcome to bring your own cold food and hot drinks with lids. Hot food is not permitted unless it’s bought and eaten in the café.
