Walk-in access to study and PC spaces is now available in the Library, or if you would like to book a seat prior to your visit we have specific areas in the library which are pre-bookable for study tables, PCs, Macs and study rooms.

If you would like to pre-book, decide what type of study you want to do, and where (these spaces are highlighted in blue on the floor plans), and you will be directed to the correct booking form.
