Main Library study space availability updates


You've told us that you like, which shows live availability of study spaces across campus.

But you've also told us that you'd like more information - where available spaces in the Main Library can be found.

Starting on Monday 12 March for a fortnight, we're trialling a "traffic light" system. We'll assess each floor of the Main Library hourly, Monday to Friday, between 10:00 and 16:00. We'll display study space availability on the plasma screens at the entrance of the building, using red, amber and green.

  • Red: few to no seats available
  • Amber: seats available
  • Green: plenty of seats available

If the trial is successful, we'll continue to provide you with traffic light information during the first six weeks of the summer term - revision and exam weeks.

We welcome any feedback on this initiative via student-staff and learning and teaching committees, and via your Library Engagement Advisor.
