Group study rooms

COVID-19. Although the library building has re-opened on a limited, bookable basis, our group study rooms remain unavailable at this time, due to social distancing measures. We will update this page, when we are able to offer this service again.


  • These rooms are intended for group work for University of Sussex students and staff only.
  • If you are a research postgraduate or member of faculty you can also book study rooms in the Research Hive.
  • You can reserve a study room online for a specific time and date: 
    • You will be given a PIN number for the door.
    • Other members of your group can enter with the same PIN and their own library card.
    • Bookings are cancelled ten minutes after the start time if no card has been scanned at the door.
  • If a room is empty and no one has reserved it, you can immediately book in at the door using your library card.
  • It is only possible to book five sessions per week (between Monday and Sunday).

Study rooms free during the current hour slot

You do not need to book rooms that are currently available through the link above, simply scan your card at the door.
