Various Library study spaces remain available and these are managed to make them Covid-safe. Government guidance still states that individuals should stay at home and only leave home if essential. So, if students can work from home they should, but for those that don’t have accommodation that is conducive to study we offer the following: see further details.....
The Rootes Grid, which is available for all Warwick students. The Rootes FlexiGrid (on the 1st Floor) and Panorama Rooms (on the 2nd Floor) are also open as study spaces.
The Postgrad Hub for PG students – in Junction, the old Sports Centre.
For Medical and Life Sciences students, there is the BioMed Grid on Gibbet Hill.
These sites are all open seven days a week – students are advised to visit our Web site for full details.
The Library is continually reviewing the situation and is working with colleagues across campus to open new spaces where we can, based on demand. Students can refer to the Study Space Availability pages on the Web and their MyWarwick app to see what is available and where.
Given social distancing guidelines, these spaces are open for individual study only at the moment, and users need to follow the University’s safe working and sanitising practices. When visiting our sites users MUST:
- wear a face covering (unless they have a medical exemption not to)
- remain 2 metres apart from others, including Library staff
- sanitise their hands.
There is cleaning equipment so our users can clean their workstation.
We take everyone’s safety very seriously and anyone not following these rules will be asked to leave.
