Using your Library

Booking a study space

Due to the additional national lockdown measures now in place, access to our study spaces are under new restrictions. Campus resources are to support online learning and for essential use only wherever possible.  Please carefully consider if your reason to be there is absolutely necessary.

Before you book a study space you will be asked to confirm the reason your visit is essential by selecting the appropriate category:

  • Students attending critical courses approved for return
  • Students without access to appropriate study spaces at their current place of residence
  • Students who require additional support including mental health and wellbeing support
