The University is providing study space for students who require access to study spaces or IT resources that they cannot access from home.
Students who are able to study from home or in their accommodation should do so and avoid travelling to campus.
Both the Harold Cohen Library and the Sydney Jones Library are open 8am – 11pm, 7 days a week with limited availability. You should only visit the Library if it is essential to do so and you must book a study space before you visit.
Opening hours are subject to change in response to any changes in circumstances or new guidance that we receive.
Students will be able to book up to 30 hours per week(Sun-Sat) in the libraries.
Spaces can be booked up to 48 hours in advance and will only be made available on the booking system 48 hours before.
