I am a student with disabilities. What services will be available to me when the McClay Library Reopens?

When the McClay Library reopens for Queen's Staff and Students on July 20th, there will be limits on the number of students who can enter the building. This means that there could be times when people have to queue to get into the Library.

The Library Occupancy App will be running again when the building is reopened, so you will be able to see how busy it is before you decide to come. You can find the App on the University App. or at the link below.

If your mobility is impaired or you will have difficulty in queuing for any length of time, please contact the Library Disability Co-Ordinator, Sally Bridge, at in advance of your visit to the building.

You will not be able to use the Library Group Study Rooms to work with your Support Provider but you can arrange for them to come into the Library to collect books for you. Again, contact Sally Bridge for help with this. You might want to consider using Microsoft Teams to with your Support Provider. 

When the building opens there will be limits on the number of people who will be able to use the toilets at the same time. If queuing will be a problem for you, remember to carry your 'Just Can't Wait' card so that you can jump any queue. We will also place a chair beside each accessible toilet so that you can wait in comfort if you have impaired mobility.

If you have queries at all about going in to the Library, then contact Sally at
