The Hive Opening Hours

The Hive is open seven days a week, from 8.30am until 10pm, throughout the year, apart from Bank Holidays.

Supporting your studies

Students have access to subject librarians, detailed research support and IT assistance.

Hive staff are available on every floor. They rove around, ready to help when you need it (they wear easy-to-see identification, so you’ll be able to spot them!).


The Hive is fully staffed during all opening hours. There is always a security guard on duty and every floor is covered by CCTV cameras to ensure that you’re safe, wherever you choose to study.

The Hive and its surrounding car parks are brightly lit in the evening to ensure you are as safe as possible as you leave.
