Monday 2 October is a public holiday to mark the birthday of this steadfast royal.  This day has been celebrated since 1788 and provides you with a well-deserved break from lectures and tutorials.

The Library will definitely be open but our hours have been altered slightly.   Make sure you check the library opening and closing hours before you decide to pay us a visit.

Need to study until the break of dawn? There’s a library for that

Need a quiet, safe and secure place to study until the wee hours? How about one with comfy couches, beanbags, excellent wifi and computer access? Do we have your attention now?

Look no further than your friendly neighbourhood library.

For the next three weeks, Nathan and Gold Coast libraries will open 7am Monday, and remain open 24 hours until midnight on Fridays with extended weekend hours to accommodate this.

  • Monday: 7am-12am (services open 8am – 7pm)
  • Tuesday – Friday: 24 hours (services open 8am – 7pm)
  • Saturday & Sunday: 9am – 10pm (services open 9am – 5pm)

Logan, Mt Gravatt and South Bank campuses are also open for extended hours.

You can find all the library opening hours here.

Use your time wisely and check out some of our self-help resources that can help you ace that assignment or exam. If you have a group assignment, book a study room.

Above all else, be kind to yourself and remember even Study Week ends eventually!


Library hours for study and exam period

You’re almost there! Just a few more weeks and the trimester will be over. You can sleep in under your doona without the pressing urgency of attending lectures, working on assignments, or studying for exams.

But we’re not quite there yet.

Next week is study week, a week long break between teaching and end of trimester exam period to allow you to study for exams.

However, we get students will often want to use the library more than usual during Weeks 12, 13 & 14 to assist with study (into the early morning even – how do you do it! Young blood?).

Books, study spots, printers, vending machines in close proximity – we’ve got you.

So, for the next three weeks, Nathan and Gold Coast libraries will open 7am Monday, and remain open 24 hours until midnight on Fridays with extended weekend hours to accommodate this. 

  • Monday: 7am-12am (services open 8am – 7pm)
  • Tuesday – Friday: 24 hours (services open 8am – 7pm)
  • Saturday & Sunday: 9am – 10pm (services open 9am – 5pm)

Check out the opening hours for Logan, Mt Gravatt and South Bank campuses here.

And don’t forget to take a look at our handy information on exam prep during study week and on exam day, as well as tips to beat exam anxiety.

Library opening hours for Australia Day

australiaday

For all those who have been enjoying using our libraries over the summer break, we are taking another quick respite.

Griffith Libraries (across all campuses) will be closed for the Australia Day public holiday tomorrow.

We are heading to the beach to build sandcastles, take a dip, and kick up our feet. If you’re not too busy hanging out in a friend’s pool listening to the Triple J Hottest 100, we may see you there!

Though if that’s not your thing, you can access all your favourite online resources 24/7 on the Library website.

Remember, always check the library opening hours for your campus library before you come to visit.
