Book a study space in the Library

The majority of study spaces in the libraries are open for drop-in use.

However, our group study rooms at Penryn Campus Library must be booked in advance. We also have a small amount of silent study spaces at both Penryn and Falmouth Campus Libraries that can be reserved.
