How to book a group study room

What times can they be booked for?

Monday - Friday from 8.30am - 6.45pm (last booking time is 6pm).

The minimum booking session is 30 minutes - maximum is two hours.

Each session of use needs a separate booking.

You must turn up within 15 minutes of your booking time or you will lose your booking.

Library staff reserve the right to remove belongings left in the group study rooms if not vacated in time for the next booking, or the library's closing time.

During weekends and evenings (from 6.45pm Mon - Fri) group study rooms are not bookable and are available on a first come, first served basis. Please note that no room tags are issued after 7pm or at weekends.

24 hour opening

During 24 hour opening the library will operate on a self service basis only after 11.45pm. If you wish to return your group room tag overnight (between 11.45pm and 8.30am) please drop the tag into the suggestions box in the foyer of the library. This is located opposite the reservation collection shelves.

Any tags issued for overnight group room use must be returned by 8.30am the following morning.

Please note: If you have booked the same group room for use during the following day, you must return your tag by 8.30am and have it re-issued to you. Failure to do so will result in the room automatically being made re-available for booking.
