From Monday 5th July we are lifting the limit on study space booking

You can book a slot to use a desk and a PC for up to three hours at a time. Just click up to three blocks when making a booking. Need longer than three hours? Just make another booking that follows on after your first. 

From Monday 5th July there will be no limit to how many hours of study space you can book per week. 

For details see How do I book a desk? 

A range of different PCs are available (some with assistive software). NCME and Developers Room PCs are higher spec machines and can run specialist departmental software. Desks in the Law Library do not have PCs but have power and wi-fi for working with a laptop.  


When can I book a slot? 

The Library has extended its opening hours as of 5th July 2021. If arriving between 5pm and 9pm, please enter the Library via the Eagle Tower entrance (next to the Eagle Bistro). You will need your UoB ID card to gain entry to the building.
