Library

The College library has been described as the ‘heartbeat’ of the Perez University College. This is because the library stock has been developed in direct relation to the academic programmes offered at the certificate, diploma and undergraduate levels.

As new curricula and programmes are introduced, and as existing programmes venture into new areas, the library collections are built to suit or accommodate these trends.
