Architecture & History of Art Collections

The Faculty of Architecture & History of Art’s collections, in support of the study of art and architecture at Cambridge, are rich, diverse and in many cases extraordinarily deep. Print and electronic materials are collected as broadly as possible for all geographic areas and periods. Borrowing is limited to staff and students of Cambridge University. Visitors are welcome to consult our collection but must contact the Library beforehand.

Access to the Library & Support 

We are open to those with a booking. Due to the COVID 19 pandemic the library is offering zero contact services, you may book on our Library Services page. Zero contact services will include Click and Collect, Scan and Deliver, and Book a Study Seat. Please bear in mind that the Cambridge University Library offers similar services.

The Architecture and History of Art Library staff will assist users with restricted mobility and other impairments which may prevent them from using the library. 

Library staff are happy to fetch books in advance so that they are ready to be borrowed from the issue desk. Using the out-of-hours returns box may simplify the return of books as there is weekend access to the faculty building.

Access for wheelchair users and those who have trouble with staircases is located at the rear of the building. There is a lift which can take you to all of the floors in the building.

If in doubt regarding access to certain areas of the Faculty building please get in touch with Reception at (01223) 332950 or via email.

Please feel free to get in touch via email or telephone. We welcome all enquiries and try our best to meet the needs of our library users.
