Upcoming opening hours

Studying from home during holidays

Where to study in the Library

There are a variety of spaces in the Library to suit your study style.

The third floor (excluding the Law Library) is Silent Study. So devices should be on silent, and no conversations allowed. During the exam period the majority of floor 2 is also silent. If you are not sure which zone you are in take a look at the posters around you on the walls, which should make it clear what the designation of that area is.

The rest of our floors are for quiet study or group study. In the Learning Commons area on floor 1 you can find flexible flat study spaces and the ground floor provides computer spaces.

You can also book a Group Study room to work together.

During the exam periods, if you find the area you are working in is getting too noisy or you would like some help get in touch with us by text on 02033222298.
