Rooms & Study Spaces: Home

Learning Environments

In response to student feedback, Library and Learning Services now offer a variety of study zones and areas. For these to be effective all students are asked to abide by the regulations on each of the library floors. Scroll to find out more about study areas.

Location of Library spaces

Group Working: Learning Zones and The Greenhouse cater for group working and we have bookable Syndicate Rooms in the Kimberlin and Hugh Aston Law libraries.

Quiet Study: Quiet study areas can be found in all of our Library spaces.

Silent Study: There are dedicated Silent Study rooms on the Second Floor of the Kimberlin Library.

Group study areas

These provide spaces for conversations amongst groups of students. These areas can be found in all of our library spaces, and include the Learning Zones. There are also bookable syndicate rooms for group-working in the Kimberlin and Law libraries.

Quiet study areas

These areas allow for an occasional brief conversation at a low volume with the person sitting next to you, however they are generally quiet. Quiet study areas can be found in all of our Library spaces. 

Silent study areas

In these areas no talking is allowed. On the Second Floor of the Kimberlin Library you will find two dedicated silent study rooms and also one silent study IT room.
