Individual study rooms

Using a study room during the summer vacation

The library is in the process of upgrading to a new and improved library system. As part of this process the ability to book individual study rooms will be temporarily removed from Friday 13 July 2018.

All rooms will be available for use on a first come first serve basis - keys will not be issued.

During this time all Solent University students and staff may use the rooms.

More information about the new booking system will be published shortly.

What are the general rules?

  • Please vacate the room ten minutes before the library closes and remove all items. No library books can be stored in them.
  • Only one person is allowed in the room - they are for individual use only. If students want to work together, they must use one of the group study rooms or group study areas. Talking is not permitted in the individual study rooms as we want to provide a peaceful study environment for all users.
  • No hot, greasy or smelly food.
  • Mobile phone calls must not be made or received in the study rooms. Texting is permitted but phones should be set to silent.
  • For health and safety reasons, doors and windows should not be blocked or covered.
  • Library staff reserve the right to clear possessions from study rooms where necessary.

Final points

The availability of a room does not guarantee that the computer in that room is working

IT problems concerning the computers in the study rooms should be referred to the helpdesk on floor two of the library.
