Return to campus: how libraries will open on 8 March
Each campus library will open between 9:30am and 6pm, Monday to Friday but any visit must be pre-booked using the ‘Book a study space’ tile within My Brighton. This applies to both staff and students who wish to browse the collections and is in line with the current arrangements for click and collect.
Once a booking has been submitted and you arrive at the library before your allocated time, you must call the library helpdesk phone number to validate your booking so staff can enable entry into the library. All details will be provided at all library entry points.
Bookings can be made in advance of the open date from Thursday 4 March.
Booking computer rooms
We will continue to support those students who do not have an appropriate study space at home by providing space for individual study. The following computer room spaces can be booked to use in the following locations:
- Edward Street
- Watts Building Level Two
- Falmer computer room
- Eastbourne computer room
The desks in these areas are suitable for general study as well as computer use and for the use of Microsoft Teams to support remote learning. These are all bookable via the Book a PC tile on My Brighton and you can book 2 x 2 hour slots per day. All rooms have printing and scanning facilities.
Please note that the Cockcroft Building Level One has now been allocated to teaching.
Please remember that all spaces in computer rooms are for individual study only and must be pre-booked. Ensure you bring your Unicard to gain access to the rooms booked.
Click and collect service will continue
Our library service will continue to provide a range of closed access services, including Click and Collect, postal loans and freepost returns to ensure continue access to physical materials, in addition to an online enquiry service and information literacy teaching and one to one support.
When on campus and in libraries
Please follow the safety measures in place to keep our staff and fellow students safe. This means pre-booking your visits, social distancing and avoid clustering with others around entrances and foyers.
