Study space in the Main and Science Libraries

15 March 2017

We provide an update on what the library is doing to help you find study spaces during the 2017 exam period.

Students studying in the library

We are aware that readers may currently be finding it difficult to find somewhere to sit and study in the UCL Main and UCL Science libraries. We are doing our best to find ways to help you find a desk. We walk round the libraries regularly monitoring the situation and are currently working on a number of ways to help - watch this space.

You can find the number of study seats available in the Main and Science Libraries, the Graduate and Senate House Hubs shown online. This is updated regularly.

Don't forget we have lots of other libraries in the Bloomsbury area.

There are also some things that you can do to help.

  • If you are leaving your study space for more than 30 minutes, please take all your possessions with you. Obviously you will need to have a break from time to time, but if you are attending a lecture or going out, please take your things with you.
  • Please only use one of the Cluster desks with a PC if you are using the PC.

If you have any comments on this, please e-mail library@ucl.ac.uk.
