Book a study space

Students can use our online room booking system to book a study space in the Library.

Please note, you are permitted to make one booking, for a maximum of three hours on a daily basis.  Bookings beyond this may be cancelled without notice, to enable other users to have fair access to the rooms.

Noise in the Library

If you are experiencing noise or disruption in the Library, don’t suffer in silence!  Please let us know about it so we can help:

  • Send an email to
  • Let us know where in the Library you are working
  • We will do our best to respond within ten minutes during our library staffed hours
  • Outside of these hours please visit the Library Helpdesk and report any problems to Security staff

The Library is a quiet space for everyone to work in. We provide social areas and Group Study Rooms for those who need to talk, but noise levels do have to be kept low in all areas of the Library to enable everyone to work there.

Anyone making excessive noise in the Library may be asked to leave, as outlined in our Acceptable Use Policy:

Staff requests

We encourage staff to consider alternative meeting spaces elsewhere on campus, but will consider staff requests for booking study spaces under exceptional circumstances. Requests should be emailed to Nick Goodfellow and to the Library User Services Managers, who will respond as quickly as possible.  At busy times of year, requests may not always be able to be accommodated.
