Find a study space

The university has a couple of pages for finding study spaces. Here’s the main one.

New: find a free desk

Library staff count the number of people in each library hourly. In the exam periods this year, the university is trialling ‘Find a study desk’, which is based on this data.

Hot tip: there’s a JSON API! Here’s the building information, and here are the study space stats.

There’s also a page for finding a free computer.

Where else can I work?

Some places that aren’t officially documented. Found an obscure place to work? Open an issue and we’ll add it to this page


If you’ve done or are doing Software Product Engineering, you should have access to MVB 2.09 (just beyond 2.11). If you need a second monitor, this is the place to go.

Queen’s Building

If you’re really pushed, rumour has it that there is some soft seating in the east wing of Queen’s Building. Good luck finding it.

More useful is the student workshop - equipment includes a laser cutter; 3D printers; a lathe and one of these. You’ll need to be trained on some of the equipment first but if you’re planning to take part in BEEES Robot Wars you’re probably going to spend a lot of time in here.

Humanities - Woodland Road

There are a few common rooms accessible to everyone between 3 and 19 Woodland Road. These houses are joined by a corridor at the back, so you can enter at one end and walk along the whole thing.
