The University Library (also known as the UL)

The UL is a truly enormous resource for students and researchers from around Cambridge, and around the world. With literally millions of books, manuscripts, maps, journals, artefacts and more, it covers every subject taught at Cambridge and more. The UL has large reading rooms, extensive study space, access to internationally-significant special collections, and of course, a very popular Tea Room!*

*Summer 2022: We're sorry, but the Tea Room does not currently contain a catering service. We are working with the University to move towards another permanent provider.
