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 NUsearch. Click on the three dots to see all the menu options.

You can book a 3 hour slot and  hold 2 bookings at a time. These can be requested back to back to create a longer 6 hour session.

If you book in advance remember to pick up your key within the first 30 minutes of your slot, otherwise your booking will lapse. Library staff wearing a green lanyard can assist you.

George Green Library rooms are available for use without booking: Group study rooms on floors B and C seat 6 to 8 people, and 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.
