Study anywhere: Study here
Happy New Year everyone! January means a fresh start, resolutions and, of course, examinations. January is named after Janus, the God of doorways, and our doors are always open to you. Particularly during exam periods when most of our libraries are open 24/7.
Nevertheless, we fill up quickly (look out for the ‘space availability boards’ by entrances, by the way) and we know that finding a space to study, or a free computer for that matter, can sometimes be tough.
But don’t worry, help is at hand! Working with Student Services and the Students’ Union, Libraries have put together a comprehensive web resource to meet all your exam period needs.
Find a space
Our Study Anywhere page is a comprehensive one-stop-shop detailing non-library study space available for you to use across campuses, including available rooms in Schools and Halls. This year we’ve managed to book more alternative study spaces than ever before on University Park, Jubilee and Sutton Bonington, from 9-28 January.
What’s more, if you’re struggling to get online, simply use our PC finder to locate available computers near to you on campus.
On our Exam Essentials page you can find links and resources to:
- Revision aids (finding past papers, study tips and resources, advice from the Students’ Union)
- Exam arrangements (preparation, exam timetables and locations, exam tips)
- Exam support (University Counselling Service, new starters Moodle course, information on specific learning difficulties, Nightline service)
We’re here for you
Don’t forget that if you need any help, assistance or advice about anything library related, you can ask one of our green lanyard-wearing customer services staff in any of our libraries. Alternatively you can call the library helpline on 0115 95 16393, email firstname.lastname@example.org or send us a message on the @UoNLibraries Twitter.
Wishing you the very best of luck for your exams, from everyone within Libraries.
