From Monday 8th January we have a new room bookings system in place for Curzon Library, which includes the individual/group study rooms within the library, as well as the new study rooms within the Open Learning Zone in Curzon B (available as soon as the area is fully open).
The new form is easy to use – just select up to two hours and confirm your booking within 1 hour by clicking the link sent to your university email.
The new link is available here – please update your old bookmarks!
General rules for study rooms
- Please don’t exceed the maximum number of people stated on the door to each room! Sometimes we find 4 or 5 people squished into a 2-person room – asides from being really uncomfortable for you, it’s a health and safety issue. Group rooms are available, plus there’s loads of space in Curzon B for group study.
- Remember that most of our study rooms are within the yellow quiet zones. They aren’t soundproof, so if you’re chatting loudly or playing music, you’re potentially disturbing those around you who are trying to study.
- No food or drinks allowed! It’s a small space, often with computer equipment present. Spillages, litter and smelly food make it unpleasant for those using the room after you, so we ask that you eat/drink in the designated cafe areas within the building. Plus, it’s good to have a break from studying.
- Please don’t leave belongings in the rooms when you’re not in there – we wouldn’t want them to go missing, and it’s not fair to other students who are prevented from using the space because of it. If we find unattended bags/laptops/coats in rooms then we will ask security officers to remove them.
