We have reduced the amount of study spaces to comply with COVID-19 social distancing rules as well as other measures put in place for your safety.
This page lists the main areas of individual study space available across Highfield, Avenue campus, and the University's libraries. Please note: this is not live information and booking is required for certain spaces.
Please ensure you stay safe while using individual study space by wearing a face covering, cleaning down surfaces and maintaining physical distance from others.
