We've increased our booking limits - you can now book a desk for up to three hours in a single 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. Any more than three blocks in a single booking will be rejected by the system. You can make multiple bookings in one day, though this is currently limited to 16 hours per day/week.

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 remains open for essential purposes only. Individual study spaces remain available:

  • To students who do not have appropriate access to online study facilities at home or in their local accommodation
  • Where students need to attend campus individual study spaces for their own wellbeing and mental health.

Where possible students are advised to study at home and make use of online learning resources 


What happens once I've made a booking? 

Once your booking has been approved, you will receive an email confirming your slot.

Please arrive for your booking promptly. Once you arrive at your desk please check in using the link in your booking email or the QR code on the desk.
