Room bookings – a guide for groups

I have met several people this week looking for somewhere to study in a group and practice presentations. If you are hunting down rooms that you can book to work in groups or practice presentations you always have several options (before resorting to the nearest group members’ house!).

Your Library

The Library is open 24/7 now and the group study rooms can be booked at any time of the day or night, except from 7-8 am when we have to run a routine system update every morning. While daytime slots are popular, the night-time slots are hardly ever used.  Don’t disrupt your sleeping routine just for the opportunity to use a group study room but if everyone in your group is a night owl and habitually awake for half the night anyway…

You can book any of these rooms up to fourteen days in advance using the online room booking system (through the Library website or using the room booking kiosk just inside the main Library entrance).  The Library Meeting Room can be booked at the same times on any day except Wednesdays (it is the larger room with a projector and networked computers just past the ground floor Library printers).

Purple Door

Purple Door also offer group study spaces, including a presentation space.

The Students’ Union also offer five study spaces in the Student Centre that you can book, from rooms for up to eight people similar to Library group study rooms up to large seminar rooms with projector facilities ideal for practising group presentations.
