Library and study spaces
If you’re looking for somewhere to study on campus, one of the main places will be the Library.
Our 24/7 opening for the summer exam period begins on Monday 23 May 2022 and will run until Wednesday 22 June 2022, when we revert to normal term time hours.
The Library is now back to full capacity, so we have just over 1,300 spaces available for study. Don’t forget, we have Library staff available in the building and via our Ask a Librarian email service (firstname.lastname@example.org ) who are there to support our users throughout the year. We also have security guards in the building overnight to ensure a welcoming, safe environment for all our users.
There are study spaces available across the four levels, many of which are bookable. This includes booths on Level 4, study carrels on Levels 1 and 2, group study rooms on all four floors of the Library, as well as individual study desks in the silent study area on Level 4 and for quiet study on Level 1. You can book your space online.
You can eat and drink on all four floors of the Library, but please don’t eat (or talk) in the Silent Study area on Level 4.
We know the Library can get very busy in the run-up to and during exams, so keep an eye out on Twitter @lborolibrary for all the latest information.
If you need computer facilities, there are a number of PC labs across campus that are open. Have a look online to find your nearest ones. The IT Services website provides real-time information on whether there are computers currently available.
You can also access computers on campus remotely, both Windows and macOS. Instructions for remote desktop access can be found here.
If you want some tips on exam techniques and revision, you’ll find resources in the Study Skills module on Learn. We recommend that you take regular breaks and to take your mind off your studies take a look at our leisure reading collection.
