Clean and Quiet

During the exam period we want everyone to have the chance to study in a clean and quiet environment.

We will help you by:

  • Providing and monitoring silent study areas:
  • Offering a Library Noise Alert Service. If someone is disturbing your study by being noisy we have a dedicated Library Noise Alert Service where you can report noise issues.
    Text 07891 484 764 with details of where you are and we will send a member of staff to discreetly investigate. Alternatively, find any member of staff and ask them to intervene.This service is specifically for monitoring noise issues in Library spaces. If you are being disturbed by noise elsewhere on campus, please report it to a member of staff in that building.
  • Introducing extra study spaces and PCs in YourSpace. Have a look at our study space availability page to find out where it’s busy and where there may be free spaces.
  • Helping you to find a desk in the Library. Staff will help you find a desk by checking where free desks may be available and will remove any belongings where a desk or PC has been unoccupied for longer than 15 minutes.
  • Extending Philip Robinson Café opening hours to buy food and drink.

We would like you to help us by:

  • Studying quietly in the silent study areas
  • Using the group study rooms, or social study spaces for group discussions.
  • Using the bins and recycling containers to keep the library clean and tidy. Please remove all rubbish from your desk when you leave.
  • Removing your belongings from desks if you are going to be away for more than 15 minutes. In the Philip Robinson please use the 4 hour/overnight lockers to keep your belonging safe if you need to leave the Library.
  • Stay hydrated, take regular breaks, and please be aware of our policy on eating and drinking in the Library.
