Study spaces

Check below to see which Library spaces are open, and what changes you can expect to see if you are a return visitor.

Please remember that the limited study spaces available are currently reserved for students with an essential need only. If you can work from home (University accommodation included), you should, and you should only travel to campus following this guidance.

‘Essential need’ means:

  • You do not have a suitable workspace in your room (no desk or wifi connection for example). All residents living in halls have a suitable study bedroom and must therefore also meet the following criteria
  • You require Library study space to support your wellbeing or mental health, and this need outweighs the risk of studying in a public space

Please remember that all Library study spaces are currently available for individual study only.

Study space availability

Remember, as well as Library spaces, there are other study spaces across campus you can use. To help you find them, we’ve developed space availability, which lists the different spaces and provides up-to-date information on how busy they are. We advise you check this to help you plan your destination on campus.
