Where can I find Study Space in Bata Library?

During this busy time of year, there is a high demand for study spaces in the library.

Good news! There are more individual study carrels and 14 more divided desks/carrels for individual study coming back to the Library very soon. This will add 66 more individual study spaces to the library. There is also more casual seating, chairs and tables for group study rooms coming back to the library.

In the mean-time, Here are some options as you look for study spaces:

BL 411 Training & Discourse Room ( 4th floor)

(when this room is not booked for training/workshops, it can be used for quiet study)

BL 106.6 Classroom  (1st floor)

(when this room is not in use for classes, it can be used for quiet study. It will be booked for classes beginning in January 2019).

Study Booths

There are now 3 study booths around the atrium windows that are bookable for individual study:

BL 412.1 – up to 2 hours

Alongside the microform viewing stations, there are also a few workstaions  available for students for individual study. The room is located behind the Service Desk. 

Time of Day

The Library is less at capacity during the morning hours. The library opens at 8:00 am and closes at 1:00 am every day during exams.

Instead of your laptop, you could sit at one of the many computer workstations on the 1st or 2nd floors.
