#StopDeskHogging

You have told us that you are fed up with other library users hogging desk space - leaving their belongings behind as they disappear for long periods. 

From 8 January 2018, whenever Library staff see occupied but unattended study spaces, we will issue an advice slip. This records the time you need to return by to keep the study space, which will be 60 minutes from the time of issue.

If you are leaving your study space for more than 60 minutes, please take all your belongings with you. After 60 minutes, Library Services staff or any person looking for a space is free to move any left belongings carefully to the side. The space is now considered vacant and free to use by others. 

If you return to your desk after only a few minutes away and find an advice slip, but before the time recorded on the slip, please disregard it and recycle.
