Study Anywhere campaign, Libraries

May 11, 2018, by Ian Kingsbury

Finding study space and support during exams

With the Beast from the East now a distant memory, spring bulbs popping up across campuses and (finally!) some sunshine and blue skies, it’s time to start planing for the Summer exam period.

In Libraries we know how hard it can be to find a space to study during exam season. We also appreciate it can be a stressful time for many students. But did you know we can help you to find study spaces and available PCs around University Park, Jubilee and Sutton Bonington campuses? And that we work with colleagues across the University to pull together exam resources and sources of support into one central hub?

Find your perfect spot

Space availability boards near library entrances – lookout for them and ask roving staff for help.

We know better than anyone how busy our libraries  get during the exam period, so we’ve booked a number of extra study spaces for you to use. Rooms are available across University Park and Jubilee Campus, Monday-Friday until 8 June, from 8am-6pm unless otherwise specified. There are also details of study spaces within Halls and Schools.

Visit the Study Anywhere webpage to find your perfect place to study. From this page you can also find out where available PCs are around campus, and follow links to a host of useful exam resources via our Exam Ready webpage.


Don’t forget that the libraries are also running a 24/7 service during the exam period for all you night owls. More information on that here.

Play it, watch it, pause it

Library games

This year we’ve introduced some new initiatives into libraries that offer some quiet distraction for those of you who are spending more time with us, and perhaps feeling more stressed out than usual. These include:

  • Play it – old school gaming and craft activities
  • Watch it – documentary screenings informing you about stress management strategies
  • Pause it – take a break and refresh
  • HealthyU pop up stress stalls

Find out more here.

Here to help

As ever, if you need any help or assistance with anything library related our friendly customer service staff (wearing green lanyards) are on hand to help. You can also contact the library helpline on 0115 95 16393 or email

Good luck with your exams!
