Heythrop Library

Heythrop Library Collection
Senate House Library
Malet St
United Kingdom

The Library of Heythrop College, built up during the College’s 400-year history, has important collections in Theology, Religious Studies, Canon Law, Patristics, Church History and Philosophy.

Following the closure of Heythrop College, the Heythrop Library collection, comprising over 200,000 volumes, is being housed in storage facilities used by the University of London.  Members of Senate House Library are now able to search the online catalogue and request items from the Heythrop Library collection.  The materials will be brought from storage either the same day (if ordered before 11am) or the next day, for use in the library’s reading rooms or borrowed by those who have borrowing rights.  The library continues to purchase books and journals to keep up-to-date and to maintain itself as a great resource for those engaged in philosophy and theology studies as well as members of the public engaged in personal development in these areas of study.

Heythrop Library Christmas Closure dates:
Please note that the Library service will be closed from 22 December 2018 to 1 January 2019 inclusive and will re-open on the 2 January 2019.
