8 The OU campus

You’ll have read earlier in the session that there is a physical Library at the OU. This is part of a large campus in Milton Keynes where many of the staff who write the modules and support students are based. There are also research students studying on campus.

Every two years the OU Students Association run a conference on campus (look out for your invitation to apply to attend – it normally happens in June).

You’ll probably never need to actually visit the campus, but if you’re in the area you’re welcome to pop in and use the Library – although do check the Library website first to see if the building is open (it may be closed or access restricted to ensure safety during the COVID-19 pandemic).
