Please note that the George Green ATR (Room B05) is still in the process of being equipped, so may not yet have the full range of Assistive Technology we intend to offer. Should you wish to discuss any aspect of the service or facilities we offer, please contact 

Our smaller libraries (Business Library, Denis Arnold Music Library and Manuscripts and Special Collections) all provide a mix of individual and group study areas with a quiet atmosphere. There are also individual study rooms available in George Green Library and a postgraduate study area on F floor.

Booking group study rooms

Rooms can be booked through the Room Bookings link on NUsearch. Click on the three dots to see all the menu options.

The bookings are for 3 hour slots but you can hold 2 bookings at a time, and these can be requested back to back to create a longer 6 hour session.

If you book in advance please remember to pick up your key within the first 30 minutes of your slot, otherwise your booking will lapse. Any of our library staff wearing a green lanyard can help if you need assistance

George Green Library rooms are available for use without booking:  

The group study rooms on floors B and C vary in size and seat between 6 to 8 people, they all have a large screen for collaborative work.

The bookable rooms B02, B08, C08, C09, C10 and C11 can be requested on NUsearch up to 1 month in advance.
