Accessible study rooms
There are two accessible study rooms in the Laidlaw Library, four in the Edward Boyle Library and one in the Brotherton Library.
Accessible study spaces are reserved for use only by students registered with Disability Services. Students are able to bring one guest with them into the rooms.
There are also additional accessible study desks in the Brotherton’s West Building and Health Sciences. While these don’t have the same level of accessibility as dedicated rooms, they do have some accessibility features such as height-adjustable desks.
How to book
You can book a room for a maximum of 3 hours per day. You can have up to 3 bookings at any one time, but they must be for different days. You can book up to 7 days in advance.
Choose your location using the Library study space booking system, tick the accessible study box, choose your session, and fill in your details.
Your request must be reviewed and approved by a member of Library staff. You will receive an email when you submit your booking, and a separate email when the booking is confirmed.
You must also check in online within the first 15 minutes of your booked session or it will be cancelled. You can do this using the QR code displayed in the room, or by following the link in your confirmation email.
Please note that if you make your booking between midnight and 8am when the library is open 24/7, it will not be confirmed until after 8am. Please speak to staff on reception if you need any help.
