Learning Lounge - Ground floor

The ground floor of the Library is a dedicated social and collaborative space. It is designed for group or independent study with a range of comfortable seating, movable tables and large screens.

Silent Study - Third floor

The third floor of the Library is a dedicated silent study area. It is designed for independent study with individual carrels and study spaces.

Talking is permitted on the first and second floors but we do ask that noise is kept to a conversational level, and that all Library users be considerate of others.

On-campus - Library Learning Lounges

Library Learning Lounges are social and collaborative spaces to share your ideas. They offer a secluded and relaxed space which can be used for peer review, group work or independent study.
