Booking a study space

To study in the Library you now need to book a study space. Library study spaces cannot be used unless you've got a booking.

Bookable study spaces are also available at King's Manor and the Piazza Learning Centre.

Take a look at our FAQ for more details. 

Study spaces

There are currently 601 study spaces available to book across the Library buildings 7 days a week (Morrell, Fairhurst, Burton, King’s Manor & Piazza):

  • All our study areas are single, socially distanced
  • We have dedicated accessible study desks or single study rooms (for Library users who have a disability)
  • Wifi access throughout and easy access to power sockets

If you're planning to study in the library, please be aware it may be a little chillier than usual. Due to infection control, we're not able to offer the blankets to loan and need to keep the buildings well ventilated, so if you do feel the cold, please wrap up warm.

  • Morrell has 306 single, socially-distanced study spaces including 30 single study rooms and 10 accessible study spaces.
  • Burton has 49 single, socially-distanced study spaces.
