The Library

Studying in the Library

Silent study

We have silent study if you like to work in silence:

Sheila Silver: 105, 203 and third floor silent study area
Headingley: two silent study rooms on the first floor

Food and drink are not allowed in Silent Study.

If you wish to talk please use the Group Study Areas.

Please switch off your mobile phones.

You will be asked to move if your behaviour disturbs others. Please let staff know at the Help and Information Point if the study environment is not being respected.


There are over 800 PCs across the two Libraries.  

You can use the PCs in the IT Labs if there is no teaching timetabled - check PC Availability or the timetable outside each room.

You can also borrow a laptop to use in the Library or bring in your own and use the wireless network.
