The Hive, Britain's first joint university and public library, offers a rich variety of resources for students and researchers. A new landmark for Worcester, The Hive is more than just a library.
A brand new library
Opened by Her Majesty the Queen in 2012, The Hive is an exceptional £60 million facility that has dramatically increased the learning resources, technology, study and social spaces available to University of Worcester students.
With over a quarter of a million books and 12 miles of archive collections, The Hive is no ordinary library. It has a busy events programme, with regular public lectures, exhibitions and performances.
Prestigious award for The Hive
The University of Worcester won the 'Outstanding Library Team' Times Higher Leadership and Management Award on June 20.
The University was named the winner during a ceremony in London, hosted by Dara O’Briain, beating off stiff competition from universities throughout Britain. Find out more.
