Library Collections at NYU London

Students can access a variety of materials while in London. 

  • You can peruse the 4,000-book NYU collection in the 5th floor reading room at Senate House Library (the administrative centre of the University of London), 5 minutes walk from NYUL's Academic Centre.
  • We keep reference and loan copies of every required reading for your courses, and carry many instructor-recommended readings, too.
  • If you can't find what you need, you can always access and loan books from the other subject collections at Senate House Library, too.

You can pick up your library card during orientation.

While we do not have any physical materials from the NYU library collection here in London, you can still access all the same databases, journals, and ebooks as at any other global site or portal campus. You can also access the electronic databases of Senate House Library by using an on-site computer in the Library: unfortunately, students cannot access Senate House Library online materials remotely.
