We understand that your study needs will differ throughout the peaks and troughs of the academic year. We have four different study zones to help you find a space that suits your learning style.
The Silent Zones are in the west wing of the second and third floors of Augustine House. These areas are for times when you need to work on your own in silence.
The Quiet Zones are available on the east wing of the second and third floor. These are spaces to focus on your work. Most PCs and printers are in these areas.
The west wing on the ground and first floor are group study zones. There are also bookable group study rooms on the first, second and third floors of the Augustine House Library, each with a PC and large screen. You can use these rooms to do collaborative work, such as group assignments or practicing presentations. You can book a group study room in Augustine House using MyBookings
In Augustine House, all study spaces in the atrium are more relaxed and informal. You can use them for more casual work or just taking a break from your studies. There are plenty of PCs and desks here, and there is also access to an outdoor terrace from the back of the second floor.
To support you in your studies there are a range of PCs and Macs available for use across all campuses.
Whether you want to catch up on some work in between lectures on campus, get a head start on your next assignment or tune in to your latest online session (remembering to use headphones!) then there is a study space for you with the latest technology.
I appreciate that there are designated spaces for different learners and students. My favourite zone is the quiet zone because there is a balance between a quiet environment and some conversation. However, when collaborating with others I enjoy working in spaces outside the designated zones or in the small group study rooms that can be booked out. More than anything the variety of choice between the study spaces is what I appreciate within the libraryAnastasia SemaanEducation Studies / Special Educational Needs and Inclusion Studies
