Library Study Space bookings
In order to continue to provide a safe study environment in The Sheppard-Worlock Library, you must book a study space in advance.
The improved booking system will allow you to choose and book a library study space yourself and can be booked up to one week in advance.
Staff will check you in at the Library Help Point when you arrive. Please note that bookings will automatically cancel if you do not check-in after 20 minutes of the booking start time, as this releases the space for others to book and provides automatic track & trace data. This will ensure that you are not contacted unnecessarily in the event of a positive Covid-19 case of someone using the library study space in the same zone as your booking and you have not used the space. Cleaning materials are provided throughout the library, please clean the study space as you leave.
There is currently no limit on the length of time you can book for. However, if demand for study spaces increases, we may need to review these arrangements. Please check our opening hours before booking a study space.
All study spaces are for single occupancy only and no group spaces are available. You will need to wear a face-covering unless you are exempt. Eating is no longer allowed in the library. In line with University policy, you are strongly encouraged to have a recent COVID test before visiting the library.
If you need to move study spaces, e.g. the PC isn't working or someone else is using the space, please report to the Library Help Point and ask library staff to change your booking.
