About the service

The Virtual Learning Spaces can be used by any UCL student. You do not need to book beforehand.

Session Duration

The virtual rooms may be accessed daily, Monday to Friday between 10.00-19.00.


Each time you enter a virtual room, you are expected to follow UCL’s Netiquette guidance.

We must all work together to make sure that everyone can make the most of the virtual rooms and treat each other with the same respect and politeness as we would in a physical library site.

Please note that individuals who do not follow the Netiquette guidance may be removed, or the rooms will be closed if students do not follow the terms of use.

Please also note that each room is monitored by Library Services staff.

Contact us

The rooms will always be hosted and monitored by a member of Library staff who you can contact if you have any queries or need help
