Study Room Bookings

Individual study rooms

There are 17 individual study rooms available on the first floor of Solent University Library, on 1A. Some of these have a PC or Mac, others have a monitor with an HDMI cable for connecting laptops.

They are for:

  • Individual, silent study.
  • All Solent students and staff. 

You can book in advance for 12 of these rooms; the other 5 rooms (numbers 112-116, without computers) can be used on a first come, first served basis.


Please note: These rooms are not suitable for practising presentations in as they are for silent study. Please either use a group study room or the presentation areas in 0C.

Group study rooms

There are 8 group study rooms in the Library, each room has a PC and a big screen with an HDMI cable for connecting laptops. The rooms are for:

  • Small groups (not individual use)
  • All Solent students.

All eight rooms can be booked in advance.

Booking regulations

Please be aware of the following regulations when placing a booking: 

  • There is no need to log in to the computers or otherwise check-in to confirm your booking
  • Keep the email confirming your booking. You might need to show it when you are at the room, as it is the only proof that you have booked the room; library desk staff do not have a list of bookings.
  • Each booking can be up to 4 hours long
  • You can book up to 7 days in advance
  • You can book up to 4 hours in individual study rooms each day
  • You can book up to 4 hours in group study rooms each day

No booking but you'd like to use a room?

You can use the study rooms without booking in advance but be aware they might be booked by someone else, and you could be asked to leave the room. Logging in to the computer does not book you the room.

Please note: Library staff reserve the right to clear unattended possessions from study rooms where necessary.
