LibraryStudy in silence

Where can you study in silence?

Levels 1, 4, and 5 are our silent study floors and have pink-coloured walls. There may be some discussion at the enquiry desks on Levels 4 and 5 as we work to answer customer queries. Please choose a seat further away from the desk if you do not wish to be disturbed. For complete silence, go to Level 1.

Facilities on these floors

  • toilets
  • free water dispensers

Book a small room

If you'd like to study quietly with one or two friends, you can book a small group discussion room. These can be booked online up to two weeks in advance. We have five small bookable rooms on Level 4. And five more rooms on Level 5.

Silent study zone rules

When you're working in the silent zones, please:

  • be silent, unless you're asking for help at the enquiry desk
  • drink only from containers with lids, such as bottles, flasks, or coffee cups with lids
  • eat only sweets and small snacks
  • keep your mobile phone on silent mode - it's fine to text, but please move to a green zone for voice calls
