Study spaces at Engineering Car Park

From Monday 13 - Friday 24 June, there will be limited availability for study space at the Engineering Car Park site. Room ENGCP04 will be available for quiet, individual study – alternative spaces are available nearby at Bill Bryson Library, Teaching and Learning Centre and Mathematical Sciences and Computer Science building.  

University members and visitors are strongly recommended to wear face coverings in University buildings and when in crowded and enclosed spaces, especially where you come into contact with people you do not usually meet.

During your visit, please follow the safety measures we have in place and be considerate of other users.

If you have symptoms of Covid-19 or have received a positive test result, you should self-isolate, book a Covid-19 test and inform the University - you must not visit the Library or our study spaces. Please visit our webpages for full details.

Engineering study spaces Information

We have arranged for designated study space to be available to all Durham students from Monday 25 April in a purpose-built modular building, situated next to the Higginson Building (Engineering) on Lower Mountjoy (Science) site. 

Opening times will be Monday-Friday between 10am-6pm. There are 70 non-bookable spaces available for quiet, individual study in the first two weeks of term, increasing to 123 spaces from 9 May, when teaching ends. 

No PC access will be available. There is power in all the rooms, although currently there are not power sockets on each desk.

The University Wi-Fi network is available to users in the building.  

You will need your University Campus card to swipe to gain access from the 9 May. 

Visiting Engineering site study spaces 

The modular building is located in the car park next to the Higginson Building (follow the signs for ENGCP Study Space). 

  • From Bill Bryson Library, head to the left across Library Square, between the Dawson Building and Geography Building.  
  • Go past the Calman Building and turn right.  
  • Head up the access road until you reach a path off slightly to your left that goes diagonally across the grassed area behind the Higginson Building (a stream will be on your right-hand side).  
  • Follow the path around the right-hand side of the building before reaching the entrance to the study spaces on your right. 

Make sure you have your campus card with you, as you will need it to gain access to the building from the 9 May. 

You are able to bring food and lidded drinks into the building. The Calman Café is less than 5-minute walk away, and there is a small café in the nearby Higginson Building. 

Toilet facilities can be accessed in the nearby Higginson Building - the accessible toilet within the building requires a RADAR key. 

During your visit, please follow the safety measures in place and be considerate of other users. 

Please note, this is a self-service area – should you have any queries whilst you are there, you can contact the Library’s Virtual Enquiry Desk.
