To promote social distancing and maintain student safety, students must book online (during allotted hours) to reserve and use the study spaces in all Library Areas: Library (Block 16 – Ground Floor), Library Individual Study (Block 4 – Ground Floor), and Silent Study (Block 19 - Ground Floor).

  • Please be advised that Study Desk Spaces MAY NOT be used to attend online classes.

  • Bookings are forfeit after 10 minutes of not showing for a reservation. Unattended belongings may be removed after 15 minutes

To book a study space: select a location(e.g. Block 16, Block 19) and an available time slot, enter your details (please only use your valid MDX student email; bookings made with invalid email addresses will be deleted), and submit your booking.
By registering a desk you agree that:

  • you will keep the space clean,
