We’re providing more Library group study space for students at weekends within the URS building, plus an option to open more space in Chancellor’s building on request!
Weekend/vacation/summer URS group study rooms
Due to fire safety limits on URS building occupancy, certain group study rooms had to be closed when the University brought the Large Lecture Theatre back into use in September 2017. However, from Friday 17 November 2017 we have arranged for weekend reopening of those study rooms whilst the theatre is unused. Rooms 2s14, 2s21, 2s25, 2s26 and 2s27 will open at 18:00 on term-time Fridays and close at 08:00 on Monday mornings.
These rooms will also open during vacations and summer terms, ensuring the maximum study space capacity can be used at exam revision time.
Ask for extra weekend space in Chancellor’s building
Even with the full complement of study space restored to around 800, we appreciate that the URS building may still become very busy at weekends. Although RUSU’s The Study and The Study @ TOB2 also open weekends, other additional campus study space available weekdays may not.
Therefore, we have arranged that if URS study space reaches capacity on a Saturday or Sunday between 10:00 and 18:00, the senior library supervisor will be able to request the Chancellor’s building be opened as well. So please ask at the URS Information Desk if you think you need more space.
Details of URS and Library building weekend opening hours are available online.
