Library guide for Students: Group Study Rooms

Mission of the Study Rooms

“The purpose of the Group Study Rooms is to provide a place for small groups of students to engage in collaborative and cooperative study - while protecting the quiet study environment surrounding them.”  There are 4 group study rooms available for booking.  Check with the Library desk for more information.

Please note

  • If you find any faults within the study rooms, please report any such issues to the Library Issue Desk.
  • Damage, including graffiti, may be charged for the full cost of repairs.

Groups should:

  • Occupy the room within 10 minutes and for the entirety of the booking time or the booking is forfeited.
  • Keep discussions at a quiet conversational level at all times and not disturb students in adjacent areas (the rooms are not soundproof).
  • You will be asked to vacate the room 10 minutes before the Library closes.
  • Switch mobile phones to silent mode.
  • Have drinks in lidded containers only; food is not allowed.
  • Be ready to vacate the room promptly at the end of a booking to ensure bookings run on time.
  • Leave room clean and tidy. Remove any Library materials that you have been using.
  • Please do not leave any personal or valuable items in the rooms; unattended property may be removed by library staff.
  • Be aware all users of the room are subject to Library’s Rules and Regulations. Any misuse of the study room facilities may result in disciplinary action.
