Floor 1: One basic room with a large table and chairs but no screen, which can accommodate up to 12. It is near the SE corner of Floor 1 (turn left out of the lifts and head across the floor).

How to book:

Bookings are for 1-hour slots and each group can book up to 2 hours per day.

6 Group Study Pods/Desks

These new spaces in The Sir Duncan Rice Library are in a large room in the SW corner of Floor 1 (turn right out of the lifts and go past the Heavy Demand section).

Book your slot online here: www.abdn.ac.uk/studenthub/login. You can book for up to 2 hours per day.

Each of these spaces has a plasma screen, power sockets and USB charging points. As there’s no in-built PC, you’ll need to connect one of your devices to the screen using the cables provided.

Taylor and Medical Libraries

There are also bookable group study spaces in these two libraries. Please speak with staff at their issue desks for details on booking these spaces.
