Book a study space

There is an optional booking system for BCU students and staff who would like to use Curzon Library, Mary Seacole Library or Curzon B. 

How do I book?

Follow the link below to our space booking website and select the times which you would like to attend from the booking grid at the bottom of the page. Once you've clicked on the booking start time, scroll down to select an end time from the drop down list.

Book a Study Space

Can I book a space with friends?

There are limited group study spaces available at Curzon Library. Noise should be kept to a minimum within the library.

How long can I stay?

You can book an individual study room at Curzon and Mary Seacole Libraries for up to two hours at a time (maximum five bookings a week). All other bookable spaces, including silent study rooms, library group study rooms and the Curzon B group study rooms, can be booked for up to three hours at a time with no limit on the number of weekly bookings.

Study rooms for disabled users

At both Curzon and Mary Seacole Libraries, rooms are available for users who Student Affairs have identified as being in need of a secure and accessible space. You may bring your support worker with you to use the room.

These rooms can be booked using the space booking link (choose "accessible rooms" as the location) or via the online chat service

Please note that bookings made online must be mediated by library staff and should be booked at least one day in advance.

Can I visit the library without booking?

Yes, space bookings are optional. We have drop-in spaces available at all of our libraries, and in Curzon B that do not need to be booked. Our study rooms are very popular and we advise booking these in advance.

Can I book a space at the School of Art and School of Jewellery Libraries?

These libraries are drop-in only. You don't need to book a study space.
