Where to study on campus

Study spaces on campus have changed in response to the national restrictions now in place.

We will keep this page updated regularly with all the latest information on where you can study on campus.

You can currently book study space (including computer clusters) on campus. If you have to take an assessment on campus because you can’t study at home, please book your space in plenty of time.

Weekdays and Saturdays until the end of summer:

Walk-in study spaces – no booking needed

At the moment, we have several areas available for walk-in study, which don’t need to be booked. Note, these are first-come, first-served, and are also for essential use only.

If you’d like to study outside, we’ve got three locations where you can find tables and purple parasol umbrellas. You don’t need to book these, but remember to follow the safety rules on campus. You’ll find them:

  • Outside the Riley Smith (Leeds University Union) – Google Maps link
  • Outside the Edit Room (Edward Boyle library) – Google Maps link
  • By the Roger Stevens building, at the bottom of the steps from School of Mathematics – Google Maps link
