Libraries are trialling bookable socially distanced group study space in selected locations outside libraries.


Group study essentials

  • Suitable for groups who require essential access to study space to support their studies. These spaces are for socially distanced study.
  • Study space must be booked online. Students can book up to three hours every day.
  • Groups must follow the Covid-19 safety measures, including wearing face coverings (unless exempt) and maintaining a minimum of one-metre distance. This applies even if you are in the same household or bubble.
  • Groups failing to follow the mandatory Covid-19 safety measures will be asked to leave, and the lead booker will be unable to book study space for seven days. Non-compliance will be considered a breach of the Code of Discipline for Students.
