Struggling to study at home? University library opening times and info

It’s that time of year again where most students are revising for exams, here Annie our Student Intern, shares useful information about university library opening times and locations …

During the exam period it can become a constant frustration for students to revise at home for a number of reasons … it might be because you live with other students who are loud and inconsiderate towards those house mates who are revising; or perhaps some of your house mates don’t have exams so you find yourself distracted; or maybe you have a room close to the road, and you just can’t concentrate with the noise of every day life.  What’s more, it’s good to have a change of venue to vary your revision.

Following our 8 tips to help you manage exam stress blog we thought it would be handy to have an easy to read summary of all the university library opening times and locations, so you can escape your university house and seek some peace and quiet.
