Book study space online

Government guidelines are being followed regarding COVID-19.

There are over 1200 bookable study spaces available at Library sites.

You must book in advance in order to use a Library study space, and you must keep to the session you have booked. Please cancel your space via our online booking system if you no longer need it (instructions on how to do this are in your space booking confirmation email).

Details about how to access and use your study spaces are included in your confirmation email. Please read this carefully. When you arrive on site, Library staff will also provide a brief induction for use of the building.

Between 11.30pm and 8.30am there is no need to book a space at AGLC. Spaces will be freely available during these times.

Alternative Study Space Options

If you can't find a suitable study space in the Library there are a range of spaces available across campus. You can find more information about these spaces and how to book them in our Additional Study Spaces FAQ.

Health and safety

  • You are required to wear a face covering at all times in the Library, even while seated at a study space. This does not apply to those with medical conditions who are not able to wear face coverings.
  • Failure to wear a face covering (unless exempt) may result in you being asked to leave the building.
  • Once inside, face coverings do not replace social distancing, so you should still maintain a two-metre distance at all times.
  • You must sanitise your hands when you enter the buildings, and wipe down all study spaces before and after you use them using the cleaning products provided.

If you have questions about booking a space, contact us on LibraryChat.
