Q. What types of study areas are in the library?

We all study in different ways, so with that in mind we have different study areas around our libraries and IT centres for you to use depending on your needs.


There are three types of study areas which are split into zones and operate on a traffic light colour system.

Red Zone: 
Silent study areas, where there is no talking at all.  Hot/cold drinks are permitted, but no food or mobile phones.

Amber Zone: 
Quiet study areas, where talking quietly is allowed.  Hot/cold drinks and cold food are permitted, mobile phones should be switched to silent.

Green Zone: 
Group study areas, where talking is allowed, mobile phones are allowed but you should not disturb other people using the library.  Hot/cold drinks and cold food are permitted.
