The University Library is "cashless", which enables us to offer services 24/7 and ensures that we comply with financial regulations.
To make payments as simple as possible, a wide range of cashless options are available including contactless (wave & pay), Chip & PIN and Apple Pay.
Cash can still be used in the vending machines within the libraries.
