Get the most out of studying in the Templeman Library

Tips to help you study smarter.

Student reading

Share your Space

When you’re studying in the Templeman Library we have a wide range of spaces to meet your study requirements.

Whether you’re looking for silent study or more relaxed options, please help to keep the Library a pleasant study environment where everyone can get their work done.

Respect your fellow students: stay silent in a silent space and please set your phone to silent too, keeping your headphones down low. Don’t reserve study spaces for long periods of time – someone else may need it.

Take a break

Look after yourself and take regular study breaks – just because the Liibrary is 24/7 doesn’t mean you have to be! Use Take a break on student PCs while you stretch your legs or grab a coffee:

  • Save your work and click on the Take a break app on the desktop to lock the PC for 20 minutes
    • it keeps your work and your account secure;
    • and logs you out after 20 minutes to make sure PCs are freed up for others to use if left for too long.

Keep your valuables safe

When you’re in the Library, don’t leave your valuable items unattended: Always take your laptop and bag with you when you leave your desk.

Let us know any issues with the spaces
