The University Library is working hard to ensure that our study spaces are meeting your requirements…but we need your help!

We are running a noise campaign (or rather an anti-noise campaign!) until the end of term to promote all of our Learning Spaces and to help you find the appropriate space for the kind of studying you want to do.

With exams and deadlines looming it is important that everyone is able to study in the way that they want in the correct space.
