The University offers a choice of Study Spaces to support different modes of study on campus and in the city. Some spaces are designed for quiet, individual study; many of which can be booked in advance.
Bookable multi-occupant rooms up to 6 people for group work and single occupancy rooms for individual activities such as interviews are also available.
It is both expected and recommended that you wear a face covering whilst moving around study spaces. You do not need to wear a mask when seated unless you are in an area where face coverings are a requirement.
