From 26 April, students unable to study at home will be able to book 35 hours of study space per week.
As we move into the assessment period, we hope this will provide students with the time and space they need for quiet study.
Click & Study is available to University of Sussex students and staff. It enables you to book a socially-distanced study space in the Library and other locations across campus.
Individual study spaces can be booked an hour at a time. You can arrive and leave any time within your booking - the desk will not be given away if you do not arrive at the start time. View the Library floorplans to see where spaces are located. If you have booked a study space in the Library, you will also have access to the bookshelves.
Please remember to cancel your booking if no longer needed: you will find a button to do this at the bottom of your confirmation email (if this does not appear in your inbox, please check your other folders).
You will only be able to sit at the specific desk that you have booked and will not be able to move to another empty desk should one be free. We have provided cleaning materials for you to sanitize your desk before and after use.
The Library is for quiet study. If you are participating in online seminars or lectures, there are other bookable study spaces on campus such as Bramber House, Fulton, York House, Pevensey 1 and Richmond.
If you wish to print in the Library, you will need to book a Click and Study space.
There are currently 395 bookable study spaces available with 2m social distancing in place. Visitors will still need to wear masks at all times in the building. Study spaces will also continue to be provided at Fulton (200+ seats) Pevensey and York House.
We continue to offer a wide range of services online. We have more resources available online than ever before. EBooks, online 1-2-1s, student support and Library chat are all still available for those who can’t visit the Library. If you need help using any of our online resources, take a look at our Search Skills Guide or book a Zoom 1-2-1 with a member of Library staff.
Get in touch on Library chat, via email firstname.lastname@example.org or on social media @sussexlibrary. We can answer any questions you might have on entering the building or accessing our services online.
