Located on the top floor of the Harry Fairhurst Building the Research Study and Lounge offers a mix of study space exclusively for use by research postgraduates. The area includes relaxed seating and more formal study desks complete with Wifi and power points for charging laptops. Lockers are also available in this area for daily use. To register for a key to access the Research Lounge or to borrow a daily use locker please enquire at Help & Information in the JB Morrell Library.

From October 2011 the Library is making available nine individual studies on the 1st floor of the JB Morrell Library. These will be let for approx a term at a time, to qualifying research postgraduates. To apply for one of these rooms please send your name, email address, department and year of study to by Friday 21st October 2011. Successful applicants will be contacted with their room allocations during w/b 23rd October and others will be kept on a waiting list. A £5 deposit will be payable on collection of the key.
