The University of Southampton

Library Cafe

A bright, modern and tranquil area situated on the ground floor in the Hartley Library.

The Library Café is a great place to study, catch up with friends or to take some time out and treat yourself to one of our artisan Lattes coffees and decadent cake.

There is an extensive range of hot and cold snacks that can either be eaten in or taken away. There is a re-heat menu displayed in the vending and microwave areas which details the full range of delicious fresh, dried and frozen foods available to purchase in the Café and re-heat in the microwaves stationed on the ground floor.

For those studying late or on campus in search of some late night refreshment and food, you can visit the ‘Refresh Vending Centre’ which offers a range of products to include Asian noodles and soft drinks.

Please come and visit.
