Studying in the Library

Study Space Survey

Do you struggle to find a place to study on campus or are you spoiled for choice? Help us to help you by filling out this short survey on your campus study habits.

Finding the best study space for you

Silent Study

Silent Study areas are for silent individual study. Silent Study areas usually prove the most popular choice for our users and the Library now has additional space for silent study throughout the building, including an enclosed Silent Study space on the Second floor.

Quiet Study

Quiet Study areas are intended for quiet individual study.

Group Study

Group Study spaces, including the group study rooms, can be used for quiet group work.  Please be mindful of other Library users and be aware that Library regulations stipulating no mobile phone usage, mobile devices set to silent and no eating or drinking except for bottled water still apply in these zones.

Help us to keep your Library a great place to study

Our Library Regulations are designed with our users in mind.  Many people feel that the use of phones and other mobile devices, loud talking and food consumption is disruptive and makes it hard to study in the Library.  Please show consideration for others and make yourself aware of the guidelines for using the Library that are displayed throughout the building.  

Being disturbed by noise or disruptive behaviour?

If a study space is too noisy, or your work is being disturbed by innapropriate or disruptive behaviour, we can help.  Contact staff at the Information Hub or Reception, both located on the Ground floor, or text us on 07713 088867 and remember to tell us where you are!
