Using the library study rooms


We know it’s annoying if you want to use a library study room but they’re all booked up.

It’s even more annoying if the room is booked, but no one is using it.

Please cancel your bookings if you no longer need them – email – and we’ll free the room up for other students.  

Findings from the IS User Survey 2023


Thank you to everyone who took time to share their thoughts in our annual Information Services User Survey last November. 

Although the numbers of respondents to the 2023 Survey was down on the previous year, your comments and feedback have been as valuable as ever. We try our best but it can be hard for us to view our services and systems from a user's perspective every time. By sharing your thoughts and experiences, you help us to assess, prioritise and develop our services to better meet your needs.

And many congratulations to International Politics student Archie Freeman, who won the £100 voucher in our prize draw.
