Booking Library study space Edinburgh Campus

It is mandatory to book a Library study space in advance in order to comply with University and Government guidelines for safe use of the space due to Covid19 restrictions.

The Library Study Space is bookable online via Resource Booker, the University room booking system.
There are 200 study spaces available currently to book (we have 250 max capacity in the building)
40 spaces on Floor 1
55 spaces on Floor 2
105 spaces on Floor 3
The study tables are clearly marked with ‘YES’ signs in green and a table number.
They are individual study spaces and physically distanced.

To book a study space, go to the myHWU app which will give you access to the Student Portal .
Select the Book A Room tile
Then select the Edinburgh Campus Library Study Space tile.

The rooms are listed as one long list so scroll down to see them all. The list starts with Floor 1, then Floor 2, then Floor 3.

Click on the name of the space that you would like to book e.g. Library (Floor 2) Sear 01
Select the time you would like the space for – there are hourly slots throughout the day, and you can book as many as you need. 
The time slots are available during Library opening times and can be booked up to 3 days in advance.
Fill in the booking form

The booking will show as accepted on the screen
You will also immediately receive an email confirmation
‘Room Bookings: Room Booking Confirmation’

When you come to the Library, a member of staff will ask if you have booked a study space online in Resource Booker.  If you have not already booked a space, you will need to do so before you can proceed.

The floor plans of the Library study spaces can be seen below and are also displayed in the Library.
Study spaces with PCs are marked in yellow.
