There is a Reading Room at basement level within the Library building. It provides extra study spaces, and offers extended opening hours: open week days and weekends from 07.00 to 02.30.

Entry to the Library Reading Room, during all hours of opening, is by an access control system.  All NUIG student ID Cards are encoded automatically for access to this facility. This is to ensure that the space is retained for NUIG students only.
