Clifford Whitworth Library: 24 hour opening has returned

The water supply has been partially restored so the Clifford Whitworth Library will resume 24/7 opening today.

Please note: As the incident is ongoing there is still the possibility of short notice closures or changes to opening hours so please check the library website and our social media before travelling.

Please note: We can currently only admit Salford University students, staff and alumni with an alumni card.

IMPORTANT UPDATE ABOUT FACE COVERINGS ON CAMPUS: Following the recent Government announcement, all staff, students and visitors must wear a face mask at all times when inside campus buildings, including the Library, unless exempt or eating and drinking.
