Group Study Rooms during exam season

Due to popular demand, starting on Wed 24 Apr we will be increasing the opening hours of the Group Study Rooms for the exam period.

During exams bookable hours will be extended during the week and introduced at weekends.

Rooms will be open around the clock except between 06:30 - 08:30 when cleaning will take place.

Note: Room 01.27 will not be included.
