Library facilities and services
Access to campus libraries
The Wollongong Campus Library remains open during standard opening hours. Please see the regional and metropolitan campus library pages for opening hours at your campus.  
Access to Wollongong Campus Library is limited to a maximum of 1000 visitors (please do not visit the Library if you are unwell). See the current occupancy of Wollongong Campus Library to help you plan your visit.
Please scan the QR code upon entry and exit (if you are unable to scan the QR code, please speak to staff at the Loans Desk), or register your visit online here, as part of the NSW government's contact tracing protocols.
Changes to services  
Access 24/7 services are suspended until further notice.
Document Delivery services may also experience some limitations where other libraries are closed, however, our staff will continue to source these requests where possible. 
To reduce the potential risk of spreading of COVID-19, we are quarantining returned and browsed items for 24 hours prior to re-borrowing.
The Student Makerspace at Wollongong Campus Library will be closed until further notice.
We appreciate that these changes may cause some inconvenience, however, the health and safety of both students and staff is a priority. Expert staff can be contacted to assist you with any concerns or queries, including via our Live Chat service. 
Updates will be provided here, as well as direct communications via the MyUOW app (opt-in to the Library channel), Facebook and Twitter
