Using silent study spaces

Help us to provide a great study environment for everyone.


About our silent spaces

Our silent study areas are a great place for focused individual study. To help, we ask that students please remember to: 

  • use the space for silent, individual study only
  • turn off phone alerts
  • move to a non-silent space if you need to talk
  • use headphones and keep audio levels low.

Too noisy?

If you’re studying in a silent area and are being disturbed by noise, please tell a member of Library staff or contact us by WhatsApp or Live Chat.
