English Faculty Library Services: Book a study space

Book a study space

Members of the university are able to book study space in the English Faculty Library. A limited number of desks are available to book throughout the week in morning sessions from 9:30am - 13:30pm or afternoon sessions from 2:00-6:00pm. If space is available you can book for both morning and afternoon sessions in the same day, and we recommend you take regular breaks. You can leave your things at your own risk, but use the lockers if needed.

There is no minimum advanced booking time, so if space is available you can book and come directly into the Library. There's also no limit on how many bookings you can make, though it won't be possible to book a study space more than 1 week in advance. However, if you do not have a booking, or if you are on the waiting list, we would ask that you please do not enter the library until your booking is confirmed. 

Unless you have a medical exemption, we ask that you wear a mask in all places in the library, even when you're settled at a desk. Desk spaces will not be assigned, so you can sit at any desk which is free. We would ask that you do not move the chairs or alter the windows, as these have been arranged within our social distancing guidelines.

Staff will be present within the Library, but you can also email english@lib.cam.ac.uk with any questions or problems. The email is continuously monitored by library staff and should be answered promptly. .
