Find a space just for you

With three Libraries across two campuses, we know finding the perfect space to study and take your exams can be overwhelming. That's why we created this guide to our Library spaces so you can find the perfect space for you.

Your safety is our top priority. To continue to adhere to our campus COVID Safe measurements, our spaces are available for single study only. Loans of headphones, VGA and HDMI cables have been temporarily suspended, so be sure to bring your own.
