On their visit to the College, Government inspectors Ofsted recognised that our showpiece Library and Learning Resource Centre is ‘at the heart of the College both physically and academically’ – and that’s exactly right.
Recognised by other college libraries across the country as one of the most forward thinking and innovative, Croydon College and Croydon University Centre students have access to facilities that are the envy of their peers.
Spread over three floors, the Library has been designed to suit the needs of all of our students. This includes dedicated Croydon University Centre resources for our Higher Education students.
Zones on each floor enable students to work either in groups or individually. Large quiet and silent study spaces are also available for those who wish to work independently.
If you bring your own laptop, tablet or smartphone to College, you can connect to our wireless network and keep your device charged in our ‘Bring your own device’ space. Alternatively, more than 160 Library PCs can be booked in advance or used on a turn-up-and-go basis.

- 45,000+ physical books
- 5,000+ electronic books available 24/7, even when the College is closed
- 100,000+ journal titles available online
- 1 million+ TV and radio programmes that can be streamed both in College and from home.
