If you are looking for somewhere to study on campus, there are a number of options available to you depending on what you are looking for.

The Library

One of our largest spaces is the University Library. From group study spaces to quiet and even silent areas, there’s a suitable space with a range of facilities for your needs.

The Library is open 24/7 during the summer exam period until 22 June. There are over 1,300 spaces available and you can also book spaces in advance.

The different types of study spaces available include:

  • Group study rooms on all four floors
  • Bookable booths located on Floor 4
  • Individual study spaces for quiet study on Floors 1 and 2
  • Silent study area on Floor 4

The Library can get very busy during peak times, so keep an eye out on Twitter @lborolibrary for all the latest information.

More information can be found on the Library webpages.
