We know it can be daunting when you visit somewhere for the very first time (and we know Bill Bryson Library is a pretty big building!) so before you need to visit for your studies, why not just pop in and take a look around? Familiarise yourself with the building, (you can follow our self-guided tour of the building at any time) find where the books for your subject are kept, grab a drink from Small Island Coffee and say hello to our team – it'll make it much easier when you do need to visit and hopefully make you feel more at ease 😊 Just remember to bring your Campus Card with you so you can get in!
There’s so much information to take in and a lot to think about at the start of term, so help your future self and create the following bookmarks:
Planning your study time is really beneficial and can help you manage your studies and ensure you still have time for yourself. Our Study Skills guide provides more information on preparation and organisation in your studies.
You can also plan ahead and use our bookable study spaces at Bill Bryson Library to guarantee your space for a specific amount of time.
We know just how important it is to help support your wellbeing. Our Wellbeing guide gives you access to resources and information to support you, wherever you are.
The University's new Student Support Hub provides information on all support and wellbeing services available to you for any wellbeing concerns, issues affecting your studies or mental wellbeing support.
