We provide our students with access to high-quality facilities to ensure their overall learning experience at Middlesbrough College runs as smooth as possible.

Set over two floors, our main building Learning Resources Centre has over 23,000 books and bookable computers, with a team of qualified and experienced staff on hand to help.

In the LRC there is a one-way system, hand sanitiser stations, face coverings must be worn when moving around and social distancing must be observed. There are many areas blocked off for your safety. This will be continuously reviewed and when it is safe to do so, we will open more areas up. Please adhere to the guidelines to stay safe. 


LRC services

To borrow books, you need to reserve them on Heritage Online. You will need your College ID as this is your Reader code. Login using your College ID, reserve the books you wish to borrow. The LRC will then find the books and contact you via College e-mail and personal e-mail (if we have it) to arrange a time for you to come and collect them.

To use a PC or to a study table in the LRC, you will need to book it in advance. Please e-mail lrcinfo@mbro.ac.uk stating the date, time and your College ID or phone 01642 333226 and we will book you in. 

If you need to print work, please e-mail the file to lrcinfo@mbro.ac.uk, we will print it out for you, and you can collect it from near the LRC exit on your way out.
