Books and resources

Study spaces

Both LRCs have a range of spaces for group and individual study activities so whether you are looking for a quiet spot to revise or a space to work with others there is a space for you.  Other than our group study rooms there is no need to book, just come in and find the study space that works best for you. 

Our LRCs may be more or less busy depending on when you visit.  Mornings tend to be quieter than afternoons, especially from March through to May.  You can use the 'plan your visit' feature on the HertsMobile app if you want to plan ahead.
