Silent Study Space

Unfortunately, this phase will result in some disruption to library users and will impact on the library environment on both floors, particularly on the dates in bold type above. In particular, there will be some disruption to study spaces on the 2nd floor as these will be dismantled, moved, rebuilt and relocated to the opposite side of this floor to facilitate works.

Temporary alternative silent study space has now been identified over the course of this phase of works from 8th-22nd November as follows:
