Our study spaces are in high demand, and sessions are regularly fully booked. Please cancel your booking if you no longer need it.

Study space

There are over 3800 bookable study sessions available at Library sites.

Library study space bookings are in high demand, especially during the semester 2 exam and assessment period. Please cancel your space if it is no longer needed.

To help manage demand and ensure every student has the opportunity to book a space, sessions can be booked online for the next two days only. Sessions will be released throughout the day every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Saturday, Sunday and Monday sessions can be booked on a Friday.

Study spaces for interactive online learning

You can book an individual study space at the Alan Gilbert Learning Commons if you need to talk while learning online, eg during online seminars or video calls.

University teaching rooms

You can also book a University teaching room to study between your timetabled teaching sessions through ResourceBooker.

Each Faculty also has its own local spaces. These will have been communicated to you directly.

Online study sessions

Looking to connect with your peers online while you study? Book one of our online study sessions, run by the Library on Zoom. You can choose to join an environment that suits you (quiet study, silent study or break space), and you’ll have the opportunity to ask Library staff questions while you’re working. Sessions run twice a day on Tuesdays and Thursdays (9am to 12.30pm and 1pm to 4.30pm).
