Welcome back and Library update

Welcome back!

We hope you had a good Spring break. Here's a quick update on the Library to support your study this semester:

Seat booking

  • Due to popular request, from 26.04.22 to 09.06.22, all seats should be pre-booked - the system will go live from 4pm on 25.04.22 to give you time to settle in 
  • As always, seats can booked for a minimum of one hour to a maximum of three hours per booking
  • Two bookings are possible per session per space (i.e. individual study desk / seat with computer / ground floor / first floor). 

Group Study Bookings

  • For group study, as per normal, bookings of up to two hours are possible, one per person booking per day 
  • Bookings can be made at:


Etiquette and booking no-shows

  • Please look out for each other during this time, when many are revising for assessments.
  • Bookings can be made one week in advance.
  • If you no longer require your booked seat, please cancel it using the link in the email you received when you booked the seat so that another person can use it. 
  • Please note that if a seat or space is booked on the system and is unused, for 15 minutes into the booking time, the seat can be used by another student, i.e. if the booking is from 11am onwards and the seat is empty at 11.15am, the booking will be void, due to a 'no-show' and the space can be used.
  • The Library Team will be roaming around regularly during this time, so do let us know if you need any assistance.

From 25.04.22 the Library is open from 09.00am to 10.00pm Monday to Friday, 09.00 - 6.00pm Saturday and 10.00 - 6.00pm Sunday.
