Advance booking
  • Booths must be booked before use at the Library Enquiries  Desk.
  • Booths can only be booked for times when the Library is open.
  • Bookings can be made for up to 2 hours in advance. Only one booking can be made in a day.
  • If a booth is in use by students other than those that booked it, they will be expected to leave. Please ask a member of library staff if there are any problems.
Students using a study booth are expected to:
  • ensure that they or one of the people in their group have a current booking in the booth they are using
  • there must be a Booth Pass on display whilst the booth is being used
  • all users must register their College numbers at the desk at their arrival
  • arrive promptly at the start of their booking time, and leave when their booking ends
  • if students don't arrive in the first fifteen minutes of a booking we may cancel that booking to allow another group to use that booth 
  • use the booths for study purposes only
  • make sure the booth is left tidy, clean and fit for use, and refrain from eating in the booths
  • all drinks are in containers with lids
  • have their College card with them whilst in a booth and show it to a member of staff if asked.
  • not exceed the maximum users of a booth
  • ensure valuables are not left unattended in the booth
  • the Booth Pass must be returned at the end of a session
If a student is found not to be following these T&Cs, they will be blocked from booking the booths and asked to leave if found using a booth.
Booth bans
If a student does not follow the rules above, they may be suspended from using the booths.  The usual period of suspension is one calendar month.
Students using the booths while suspended will receive a further ban of one calendar month
Students who misuse the booths following a ban will receive a further ban. If a student receives a third ban, they will be suspended from using the booths for the rest of the calendar year.
Students can appeal bans by asking to talk to the Duty Librarian or emailing
