Study spaces

The Library provides a wide variety of study spaces to suit all your different learning needs.

Study space availability

Study space is in high demand across our Library facilities. During our busiest periods, particularly in Term 3, the Library study space availability tool can help you find a space.

The traffic light display helps you to easily see which areas of the Library may have spaces for you to study in. The traffic light colours represent:
