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 spaces closed, in-person ICT support suspended

Library spaces are closed and services have moved online.

Other study spaces will remain open with card acess to staff and students. Study spaces within closed buildings will not be open. Please check if access labs and learning hubs are open before travelling to the University.

We are not currently providing in-person support at our ICT Learning Hubs. You can still access remote support for your University ICT needs by submitting an online request.

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 an online file storage service such as Dropbox or iCloud.
