Studying on Campus During COP26

Library and James McCune Smith Building


The Main Library and the James McCune Smith Learning Hub will both remain open as usual throughout COP26. You will need your campus card to access either building during the two weeks of the conference, so make sure to bring it with you if you’re studying on campus.

If your card has been lost, damaged or stolen, or if it has expired but you are a continuing student, you can request a replacement online.

There may be changes to some of our other study spaces during the period from 31 October – 12 November, so please check the UofG Life app to see which spaces are available each day.

Reach Out is Here for You

Reach Out Ambassadors will be around on campus to support you. Look out for the team in their blue Reach Out t-shirts and lanyards, they'll be happy to help you find the answers to any questions you have. You can also get in touch with the team through UofG Helpdesk, and search the UofG Helpdesk Knowledge Base for instant answers any time.

Use the Library Wherever You Are

Remember you don’t need to visit the Library to get help, information and access to resources. If you have access to the internet, you can use your GUID to access our electronic collections. We offer over 80,000 e-journals and more than 1 million e-books, and we’re adding new titles all the time. Glasgow Anywhere is full of information to support on and off-campus study, with a Library Remote section linking to the Library services and support available to you wherever you are.

Study safely

To help keep everyone safe, the following safety measures continue to apply in all UofG libraries and study spaces:

  • Face coverings are mandatory unless you are exempt, and can only be removed to eat or drink
  • Enhanced cleaning is in place, focusing on heavily used areas
  • Hand sanitising stations are available throughout our buildings
