Book study space online

Government guidelines are being followed regarding COVID-19.

There are over 900 bookable study spaces available at Library sites.

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 9am there is no need to book a space at AGLC. Spaces will be freely available during these times.

If you are struggling to find a study space in the Library there are spaces available to students in several halls of residence. Please see our FAQ for more details.

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.
