Group study room booking policy
- You may book up to six slots a day, or twelve a week – any bookings in excess of this will be automatically cancelled.
- In the interest of fairness to other library users, please don’t block book rooms within your group.
- Depending on the room size, bookings must be for a minimum of groups of two or four (min group size is indicated in room description).
- Individuals or groups may use a room without making a booking. However, you will need to vacate the room if a group with a booking shows up.
- Visiting students may use the rooms as long as they are part of a study group with King’s students and provided they have followed the visitor access procedure.
- Room bookings operate on a fair use basis. Library Staff reserve the right to cancel inappropriate bookings.
These rooms may not be:
- Used by representatives from external organisations. Alternative space is available here.
- Used for single use occupancy by students or NHS staff members who wish to work with external visitors on course work, e.g. for interviews, meetings.
- Booked for teaching, lecturing or meeting purposes.
