Single Study Room Bookings

Single Study Room bookings at Mary Seacole Library are for a maximum of 2 hours with a limit of 5 bookings each week. This is to ensure equal access to these study spaces for all. 

All other spaces can be reserved for 3 hours. 

Seats 1-41 are for drop-in use and therefore not bookable. 

Individual Study Rooms are not soundproof so we request that you try to keep noise to a minimum. These rooms are for use by one person at a time. This is to ensure the library is a quiet and comfortable study space for all.

This location or Category has multiple capacity options (i.e. single seat, group spaces, etc.). Please select the desired capacity from the Capacity dropdown above.
