Study space during exam season – how the Library can help you

Looking for study space – we’re here to help!

With exams fast approaching, we want to help you find the best possible place to study:

  • Library+ is returning Monday 20 May to provide over 150 additional study spaces just a short walk from the Library in AC03.
  • If you’re struggling to find the right study space then take advantage of our returning Find-a-seat scheme. From week commencing 13 May student ambassadors will be on hand at our busiest times to help  you find somewhere suitable across the Library and Library+ spaces.
  • Priority space for final year students – following a positive response to the January pilot, we’ll be providing priority silent study space for final years from Monday 20 May in the silent room on Level 5 of the Library.  If you’re not sure where this is just speak to Library staff or a student ambassador.
  • #fairspaceforall – to use our space as efficiently as possible we need your help. We’ll be encouraging you to take action and use space that has been ‘reserved’ unfairly. Look out for #fairspaceforall notices flagging up how long a space has been left empty and if it’s been left for more than 40mins feel free to move items aside and use the space. Or if you see desks left abandoned for longer than 40 mins that we haven’t flagged up just let us know by texting the noise alert number (07972218326) you’ll find on stickers on Library desks or speak to a member of staff.

These schemes will be running throughout the May/June exam period and if you have any feedback or would like to suggest other ways we can help with making best use of study space then please let us know –
