Are you looking for somewhere to study during the examination period? All of the major library locations have extended opening hours and additional study rooms during this period. During the peak period, from Monday 26 to Thursday 29 March, more than 750 extra study spaces will be available.


In collaboration with Facility Services (FS), the Library will have access to the lecture rooms not in use, which will be deployed as places to study during this examination period. This offer will depend on the availability of the lecture rooms and may therefore vary from day to day.
