Book a Seat

Book a seat or room in the Library



If you would like to study in the Library, you must book a specific seat or room. We are unable to offer walk-in access to study spaces.

The Libraries have bookable spaces on the Main, Ground, and Basement floors of the R.P. Bell and in the Music Library.

All our bookable spaces are numbered by their floor and type. We have seats at tables; study rooms; and seats with computers.

To see where the seats, rooms and computers are located, please click the "info" box beside each seat in the booking system or see photos at the links below.
