Face to face with a little space

Physical distancing guidelines apply to individual and group study rooms and we have reduced the capacity of our rooms as a result. Please check the room capacity in UQ Book It before booking a room to ensure there will not be too many people inside.

Click the Information button beside the room title. The room information and capacity will appear.

 library room information visible on screen. Room as capacity of two people.
Example of room information available when you click the Information button: room description, booking rules, notes, room capacity, whether the room contains a green screen, library building, the type of room, and the campus.

Booking a room? Respect others using the space

You can book a room online:

  • 3 hours maximum per booking
  • limit of 3 bookings per calendar week (Monday-Sunday)
  • up to 7 days in advance.

You cannot make bookings for a date that has passed, is more than 7 days in advance or that are reserved for certain client groups. 

Remember to:

  • arrive on time and vacate the space 5 minutes before the end of your booking
  • keep noise to a minimum - rooms are not soundproof
  • cancel any booking you no longer require.

Locate the room

Rooms have names such as 01-W437 Law Library. The name is made up of the UQ room number and library name, so you know where the room is:

  • 01 = building number one
  • W437 = room number W437. The first digit is the floor number (level 4)
  • Law Library = the library name, Walter Harrison Law Library.

See locations & hours for floor plans that include bookable rooms.

It’s a busy place: share the computers

  • If you’re not using the library computer, let another student use it.
  • If you need to take a break, please take your things with you.
  • Library computers time-out after 15 minutes of inactivity so that other students can log in.
  • View more information on using the library computers including available software.

Some food and drink is OK

You may eat and drink in most library spaces – but cold food and drinks with lids only, please!

Studying with others or by yourself? Find the right space.

We have purpose-built group and individual areas in our locations so that you can work with other students or study quietly by yourself.

  • Group areas are located on lower floors.
  • Quiet spaces are located on the upper floors.

Look after yourself and your belongings

Leaving the library? Don't leave your belongings. Thieves target unattended property (if you fall asleep your belongings can be a target too). Find out how to recover lost or stolen property.
