University study spaces

There are a variety of places to study across the University.

For spaces in the Library and various desks bookable across campus, you can check the Library Booking System. We recommend advance booking, which can be done 3 days in advance. 

If you would like to book an individual meeting room for one person to study in, you may also book around the timetable using the Room Bookings System.

  • At present, indoor group study is not available outside of any agreed timetable.
  • Please note the PC Classrooms are currently closed due to COVID restrictions. 

You can also see what facilities are available nearby using our interactive map. Please note, some of these areas may still be closed due to COVID restrictions during Summer Term. '

There are walk up individual study areas in Spring Lane and the Island of Interaction at the Ron Cooke Hub. You may hold outdoor group study sessions in groups of 6 in the University of York's Pop Up Park, Market Square and on Greg's Place outside of booked use. 

If you'd like to take a break or to study with a bite to eat or a coffee, check out the opening times for our catering venues
