Current disruptions

Main Library

Wilkins Terrace Project

UCL Main Library users may experience noise disturbances in reading rooms from works taking place on the UCL Wilkins Terrace project site.

Works are taking place to extend and refurbish the UCL Lower Refectory and to construct the new Portland stone Upper Terrace. Current works include the construction of service ‘Tunnel A ‘ for the project, close to the JBR, and steelworks in the area of the old Physics Yard.

Please note:

The steel decking for the new Wilkins Terrace will be installed on site from 25 January. As the steel decking needs to be cut and fixed it is anticipated that these steelworks will cause noise disruption in the Main Library. Areas of the Main Library expected to be most affected are the Donaldson and the Romance Languages reading rooms.

The new steel decking is being installed in two phases:

  • Phase 1 will commence 25 January and will last approximately 1 week
  • Phase 2 will commence mid February and will last approximately 2 weeks

The contractor will be taking measures to minimise the disruption caused by these works, installing sound barriers across the site to dampen down noise levels.

Noise cancelling headphones can be borrowed from the Main Library Short Loan Collection.

UCL Senate House Hub has opened to provide study space away from the construction works and can be used for quiet or social study.
