Study Space

We are a study space dedicated to language study and activities and we are situated on Level 3 of the Library (rooms 3.10, 3.10A and 3.10B) near the back staircase. We are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The easiest way to access us is through the Library rear staircase.

In room 3.10 you will find nine PCs for you to use. Some of these are connected to a DVD or a VHS player and to a large plasma screen. There is also a whiteboard available.

In 3.10A there are three PCs, one DVD player and a whiteboard in a separate smaller room.

You can print from any PC and collect your work from the machines at the back of Library Level 2.

It is your responsibility to comply with all copyright legislation.

Language resources

Our resources have been grouped into beginner, intermediate and advanced level.

These include:

  • course books

  • textbooks

  • audio CDs

  • fiction and easy reader books

The printed resources are shelved outside the Language Learning Zone on Level 3 between the architecture and literature journals.

Our DVDs are located on level 2 on the right hand side of the Library, just past the Issue Desk.

You can borrow these resources for different periods of time.

You can also find language magazines inside the Language Learning Zone and newspapers in different languages on Level 2 near the entrance of the Library.
