Study spaces in the Learning Resources Centres

Find the right space for how you want to work

Both LRCs are open 24/7 for group and individual study activities so whether you are looking for a space to participate in a live teaching session, watch a pre-recorded class or learn online there is a space for you. 

Group study spaces

The LRCs have a range of group study spaces including study booths that are available on a first-come, first-served basis.  

If you are looking for a space for some focused group work, you can book one of the LRC study rooms at   Many of the study rooms are kitted out with new PCs with integrated webcams and mics  for participating in live teaching sessions, watching a pre-recorded class or learning online.
