College Library

All staff and students who wish to use the College's physical library collections are encouraged to make use of our remote request service for scans, deliveries or collection.

You can search the College Library's physical holdings and online resources as well as resources across the rest of the University via SOLO. To search only the books in the College Library, select "St Hilda's College Library" from the drop-down (the default is "search everything") and limit to "physical resources" using the options on the left hand side.

For more details about the Library and its services, current students should visit the Library WebLearn pages (login using single-sign on). You can also follow the Library on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.

Opening times

The College Library space is open to Graduate students and those Undergraduates on courses with permission to return. Other students living in Oxford may contact the library to seek permission for access. Such requests will be considered in consultation with the Dean on a case by case basis.

The space is currently available between the hours of 10am and 4pm, Monday to Friday. It will remain locked at all other times so that library staff can provide remote services safely to support the majority of students this term.

Three study sessions are available (10 til 12, 12 til 2, 2 til 4) and must be booked via the Bookings Portal. Sign in using your Single Sign On, then select "appointments".

Desks must be vacated promptly at the end of each session without the need for staff to intervene.


To contact the library, please email or phone 01865 276849.
