Quiet study options
You can use empty teaching rooms for quiet study, with the understanding they must vacate if someone with a formal room booking arrives. The booking schedule of each central teaching room is displayed on the door of each room, this will inform you how long the room will remain unoccupied.
Group study options
It is also possible for students to book teaching rooms for course related activities (group/project work, revision, presentation practice etc.), for hours between 9:00 – 18:00, Mon – Fri.
Before arranging a booking, please read the room booking guidelines.
To arrange a booking, complete a room request form and email to firstname.lastname@example.org from your University email address.
