Studying in the Sheppard Library

Due to Covid-19 we need everything to be as safe as possible on campus; this means that the way we provide space for studying has changed;

From September, study spaces will be available through an online booking system.

You will be able to book a 2 hour time slot between 9am -12.30pm and 1.30- 4.30pm

Study spaces will be for individual quiet study only; this is to ensure we comply with guidelines on social distancing and health and safety. These changes will be kept under continued review.

PC availability

from September you will be able to book one through the study spaces booking system - you can choose between a PC, Mac or Laptop space depending on what you prefer.

When we first reopen it will not be possible to browse the bookshelves, however we will be operating a Click and Collect service, so that you can get hold of books that are not available electronically.

If you need help or experience any issues regarding excessive noise or behaviour please text the phone number signposted around the library and a member of library staff will assist you.

House Rules

  • Please observe social distancing guidance and the one-way system
  • Hot food is not allowed in the Sheppard Library at any time, but you are welcome to bring in cold food and drink
