We offer a range of bookable study spaces in Bill Bryson Library, giving you the option to plan ahead or guarantee a study space for a certain amount of time.
You can book a space depending on the study zone you prefer, either as a desk space or with access to a PC or docking station. Specific bookable spaces are available to Postgraduate Research students.
Non-bookable spaces are available at all our study space sites - simply find an available seat and stay for as little or as long as you wish!
If you're heading to Bill Bryson Library, you can check how busy it is and how many free study spaces there are before you visit on our live occupancy page. Take a look at our floor maps to see which areas to use if you haven’t booked a space.
You can book an individual or group study room at Bill Bryson Library through our online Space Booking system. Please be aware that our study rooms are not soundproof and should only be used if you have pre-booked the space.
We all have different preferences when it comes to our study environment, so we offer three different types of study zones in Bill Bryson Library - collaborative study, quiet individual study and silent study.
