Level one Central Library & Duhig Tower opening soon

Freshly renovated spaces will open soon on level one of Central Library and the Duhig Tower at the St Lucia campus.  

Level one closed for repairs in late 2020 due to storm-related damage.

Fresh new spaces

Level one will offer more than 380 study spaces with group and individual study options and casual seating. The spaces will be available 24/7 with your UQ ID card.

  • Library services and facilities, such as the AskUs service point, the High-Use and Requested Items section and loan returns will return to level one. 
  • Bookmark Café in Central Library will reopen as well as the student kitchenette in the Duhig Tower with fridge, microwaves and seating.
