Access to Caulfield Library during the refurbishment

The expansion and refurbishment work continues at Caulfield Library. Here's the latest update with some tips for accessing the collection and study spaces.



View from Queens Avenue overpass
If you have not been to the Caulfield campus recently, you'll find that to go to the library you’ll need to:
  • come up to the level 2 entry using the staircase outside Building K
  • come across from Building B (use lift for accessibility)
  • use the overpass or the eastern staircase of Building A. 
We’ve put directional signs around these areas to guide you.

You’ll also see construction fencing around the library entrance on level 2 and we’ve installed an entry tunnel for your safety.

Inside the library, you’ll find that study facilities are available and regular services continue.  Space is reduced, however, as the entire level 4 and sections of levels 2 and 3 have been closed off temporarily to allow the building to progress.

It will be noisy and there may be some vibrations from the western side of the building particularly during the period between mid-February and mid-March. You can request ear plugs from the Information Point. The quietest spots are on the eastern side of the library.

We also recommend that you save your work regularly when using a computer or laptop in the library in case of power outage.

You can now browse the shelves on the ground floor where books, multimedia and other collection materials now live.

To collect items you've requested from other libraries, go to the Holds shelves just near the entrance.

Library classes and workshops may be held in other buildings during the refurbishment, so take careful note of workshop location in the class booking system.

Additional study seats are available in C1 in Building C (see campus map).
