Students and staff of the university no longer need to book a study space if you wish to study or browse in the library. You can visit as often as you need to and stay for as long as you like.
However we do offer bookable Group Study Rooms and Individual Study Pods for those times when you need to be on a Zoom call or prefer to be in your own space. You can book these spaces here: https://libcal.essex.ac.uk/r
Group Study Rooms are available on floors 2 - 5 and are suitable for an individual or a group of up to 12 people. Individual Study Pods, suitable for 1 person, are located in the ground floor Large Reading Room and on the 2nd floor.
When you visit us during our opening hours, a member of library staff will greet you at the entrance. You will be asked to continue to wear a face covering whilst in the library and use our 'Quick Check In' service for track and trace purposes.
You can borrow a laptop from our Laptop Loans service on the ground floor Library Reading Room for use in your study room or pod.
Please remember to keep personal belongings with you at all times and do not leave belongings unattended at study spaces.
