Reservation of seats

To ensure that all available facilities are open to every student, the principle of equal access will be enforced within the Library fairly and impartially.

26 York Street:


  • Students leaving seats should ensure that they have placed a BLUE form on their desk indicating the date and the time they have left. Seats can be held for max. 30 minutes from the time they left. Students who have not returned after 30 mins, may loose their seat to another student. 
  • Students who see seats that have been unoccupied for longer than 30 mins, can move belongings aside on the desk and use the space.
  • The library is not responsible for personal items that are moved if a seat has been unoccupied for longer than 30 minutes.
  • The library team will do spot checks on seat reservation issues and note the time they have checked. This staff check will also note from what time the seat can be used by another student. 
  • The College is not responsible for unattended material.
