Student Group Study Rooms Makeover

The library student group study rooms (A206 and A207)  have been refurbished in the past few weeks to make the study areas as useful as possible for the new semester. Three new whiteboards have been installed across both study rooms (two in A206). A new data-screen for use with laptops is now ready to use in A206 as per the one in A207.

To book either of these rooms talk to us at the Kevin St Library Information Desk or email or tweet us. The max time is two hours per booking (from 9am) and a minimum of 2 students per room. Enjoy...
