Late night library spaces in the summer

In response to student feedback, we will be opening Merchiston Library 24 hours a day in Trimester 3 (from May to September). See more information at Opening Hours.

Information Services is trialling this new service as a pilot to provide extra support for students and staff working at non-standard times during the summer months. Please note that access to browsing book stock is only available during staffed hours, but you can request books using Click and Collect and collect them from the local collection shelf 24 hours a day.

Book your study space in advance at If you need help, email us at any time at or call 0131 455 3500.

We will continue to update the central Library Services and COVID-19 webpage with an overview of the latest information following any Government changes, so please check this before you plan a visit.
