The Hive, Britain's first joint university and public library, offers a rich variety of resources for students and researchers.
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.
Three more awards for The Hive
The Hive won three awards at the RIBA Regional Awards on June 12.
The Hive received a RIBA West Midlands Award, RIBA West Midlands Sustainability Award and a RIBA National Award, which means that The Hive is now one of 43 buildings to go forward for consideration for Stirling prize shortlisting.
