Study Healthily and Take a Break

Many of you are spending longer hours in libraries and learning spaces and need to take a break from time to time.

If you need to leave your desk for more than a few minutes, you should use a study break pass to make it clear to others when you’ll be back.

You can take a break for up to 45 minutes whilst studying in the libraries and learning spaces. Just pick up a study break card and place it on your desk when you leave. If you are going to be away for more than 45 minutes, please take your belongings with you and - if possible - we will help you find a new place on your return.

Passes are available for collection from Information desks and stands at entrances and most floors of library buildings.

A few things to remember…

  • Our study break scheme runs throughout the year and is not restricted to busy periods.
  • If you are away for longer than 45 minutes you are at risk of your belongings being moved to one side by other students or staff.
  • If you feel uncomfortable moving someone’s belongings, ask a member of staff and we’ll do it for you.
  • Take your valuables with you. Belongings are left at your own risk.
