Library at Walton Hall

The Open University campus at Walton Hall in Milton Keynes is home to our library. The library currently offers study spaces for OU staff and postgraduate researchers. At this time, it is not open to undergraduate students, or staff and students from other universities and local colleges.

Please check the opening hours before you visit. 

The campus map shows the location of the library and parking. Disabled parking is available behind the building and access is via a ramp and an automatic door. Toilets are available on every floor and there are two lifts as well as stairs to move you between floors.

Study facilities

Study spaces are available on the first and second floors. The first floor offers tables for quiet study. The second floor is more suitable for group study or those who prefer some background noise. Please note that due to ongoing Covid-19 (Coronavirus) restrictions, study spaces on the second floor are very limited at this time. 


Wi-Fi access is available throughout the Library via The Cloud network.

Students from other Universities can access the Eduroam Wi-Fi network, please ask your home institution for more details.
