Our library resources

The library dates back to the founding of the College in 1614. It has some 180,000 volumes in its collections, and is one of the finest libraries of theological and philosophical books in the UK.  Our students benefit from generous library provision, with one of the highest ratios of books to students in the country.

As a University of London student you will also have access to the University Library at Senate House in Bloomsbury. This gives you access to a large multi-subject collection and a wide range of electronic resources, mostly accessible off site.
