Extra space and tools to help you study smarter

Choose your Study Space

At this busy time of year, it’s important to find the right study space that works for you.

We are pleased to provide 180 extra study spaces in the eight Templeman Library Seminar Rooms on the ground floor in Block A. They are open 09:00-21:00 Monday to Friday until the end of the summer term. These spaces are for individual and group study. Remember that bookable Group Study rooms are also open 24/7. Floors 2 and 3 Blocks A, B and D are silent study until the end of the Summer Term.

Check where’s free

You can check the availability of study spaces and PCs on display screens throughout the Library. You can also find free PCs in the Library and in Study Hubs across campus online.

To guarantee use of a PC at a certain time you can book a PC¬†in D | 2 PC Space for up to 3 hours’ silent individual study between 09:00 – 18:00.

Take time out

Take some time out from your busy schedule to relax in our Chill Out Zone – no studying allowed. It’s located in D Block on the first floor and is open 24/7 (except 06:00-08:00). Have a break from studies in the Library Cafe or take a walk in our beautiful grounds. Don’t forget to save your work on a Student PC and use the ‘Take a break’ function.

Improve your effectiveness

There are apps and software out there that can help you manage your time, take notes, read efficiently and more, but choosing one can be a minefield!

These tools, which you can search or browse, are tried and tested by University staff.

Revision spaces on campus

Additional study spaces will be available across campus during the Summer term in the Colleges. The following rooms will be open 09:00 – 22:00 throughout the week:

  • Darwin: Seminar Rooms 2 and 7, Darwin Tower
  • Eliot: Barlow, Bird, Chilver, Holland, Pollard and Taylor
  • Rutherford: Cloister Rooms 15-17 and 19-21

Share your Space

Everyone is working hard on revision and deadline so please be considerate and respect the Library building and the people in it, respect the zone you are in and don’t reserve study spaces.

Members of staff regularly patrol the building. Use library-report@kent.ac.uk to email us if there is a disturbance or something not working. A member of staff will come to the space.
