Booking your study space

From Wednesday 16 December, you can book study space three weeks in advance for up to 9 hours per day.

The booking system can be found here. If you start by scrolling down and selecting your chosen space, this will take you to more information including guidance notes on how to book.

Please only book the space you’re going to need. We would like to provide for as many people as possible at this time.  Also it would really help us if you would kindly cancel if you no longer need a booking you have made. Thank you!
