    Don't be an idiot like me and wait ages to start your work. Seriously, don't do it.

    The group room with the computer is the perfect place to practise a presentation. If everyone is on the same course go together for moral support+feedback!

    Best place to study

    The group study rooms are really cool and are isolated even from the keyboard click sounds from the computer clusters, making a silent place.

    Please bring back the old cloth library bags! They may have been 50p more but the quality was better and I could carry more books in it because it had a square shape. The new ones aren't worth buying.

    If you need a Ron Swanson-like level of silence to do your work, try the silent areas on level 4! =D

    There are a lot of study areas but few computers available. Especially at night, during exam period.
