The University provides over 1,500 study places across our campuses, including for group and private study.
Study space map
The largest collection of study spaces at Whiteknights and London Road have been highlighted on our study space map.
During the Library refurbishment, study spaces, Café Libro, most Library services, the Course Collection, subject Liaison Librarians, Study Advice, Maths Support, and the IT Service Desk have been relocated to the adjacent URS Building (Library@URS).
There are a variety of study areas - group, quiet and silent - on the ground and 2nd floors of the URS Building.
In autumn 2018 some areas of the refurbished ground and first floors of the Library Building were reopened, including some study space. Please note, building work on these and other floors will continue and will sometimes be noisy or disruptive. Therefore the study space and services arrangements in Library@URS will remain in place for the whole of the academic year 2018/2019.
RUSU study spaces
The Students’ Union provides a couple of spaces for individual or group working – The Study and The Study @ TOB2. To coincide with the ‘RUSU Says Revise’ campaign, additional study space has been made available for the 2019 Summer term. Find a timetable of available space here.
You are welcome to use rooms which are not timetabled for teaching. Discover which ones are currently available using the Free Room Finder.
Informal study spaces
There are a wide range of other locations across campus, many of which are suitable for working together. View a list of informal study spaces.
Halls of Residence
There are a number of study spaces in Childs, Mackinder, St George’s, Stenton, Wantage and Wessex, for Halls residents. Ask your Halls reception team if you’re not sure where they are.
