Accessible study rooms

The Room Booking system cannot be used to book the Library's Assistive Technology rooms. Instead, students with support plans should arrange bookings at the Enquiry Desk, by telephone (0161 295 5535), or email ( There are accessible study rooms at every site. Rooms can be booked for a maximum of four hours.

Non-medical helpers such as Study Coaches need to ask the student they will be meeting to book the study room on their behalf.
