Partial re-opening

The Modern Records Centre will be re-opening from 16 March to University of Warwick researchers only.

We will remain closed to external researchers until further notice.

We are currently operating with reduced staff and reduced capacity, and there are therefore some changes to how our service operates.

We will be open on Tuesdays, Wednesday and Thursdays between 9.30-12.30 and 1.30-4.30. We will not be open on Mondays or Fridays.

We will require researchers to:

  • Book a space at least one full working day (minimum of 24 hours) before the visit
  • Order all documents required at least one full working day (minimum of 24 hours) before the visit, giving the document reference codes. A maximum of 6 boxes or 15 individual items will be produced per person per day
  • Wear face coverings whilst in the building and observe the general guidelines for Covid-19 which apply to all buildings on the campus
  • Be aware of the changes in opening hours and the lunchtime closure period

More detailed information about visiting the Modern Records Centre and changes to our service under the current pandemic conditions is available elsewhere on our website.
