Edinburgh Campus Library Study Space and Study Rooms – November 2021

Library Study Space and Study Rooms are available to book in advance online via Resource Booker, the University room booking system.
There are 300+ study spaces available plus some individual and group rooms.

To book a study space, go to the myHWU app which will give you access to the Student Portal and then go to the Book a Room tile or go direct to Resource Booker.

There are two tiles for the Library :
EDINBURGH LIBRARY – STUDY ROOMS

EDINBURGH LIBRARY – STUDY SPACE

(There is also a tile for GROUP STUDY SPACE which has rooms in the Learning Commons and the GRID).

The Library Study Spaces 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) Seat 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

When booking the Library study rooms – individual and group rooms – you will need to add the usernames of all the students in your group who are using the room.

All bookings will show as provisionally accepted on the screen.  When you come to the Library, you need to check in at the Library Service Desk with a member of staff to have the booking approved and finalised.   If you have not already booked a space in advance, you will need to do so before you can proceed.
The study spaces are clearly marked with ‘YES’ signs in green and a table number.  The spaces are physically distanced for safety and the study rooms have a maximum capacity. 

The floor plans of the Library study spaces can be seen below and are also displayed in the Library.

Please only book a study room or study space for the time you need it. For Group Rooms, please only book for the time of your group activity and then make available for other groups to use. For individual study rooms, please only leave the room for short breaks if necessary.
