Study spaces

Whether you need a collaborative working space, access to a computer or a place to plug in your laptop, we have spaces all over our campuses for you to study. 

COVID-19 update: library updates and support

Opening hours for library spaces have changed. University of Sydney campus and libraries have reopened for students and staff.

Find out the latest on locations and opening hours on the Library website.

All computers managed by ICT in our study spaces are virtual desktops. They provide access to standard software, as well as course-specific applications. You can customise your virtual desktop so that bookmarks, applications and downloads are available on any of our computers when you log in.

You can find computers on the campus map by selecting ‘Computer access centres’.

At the end of each study session, remember to keep a backup of your work by emailing it to yourself, saving it to an external USB or to OneDrive.

Libraries

Library locations have reopened to University of Sydney staff and students with a valid staff or student ID card. For the most up-to-date information on access, please see the Library’s COVID-19 library updates and support page.
