You Said We Did
"My only issue is Starbucks in Cregan Library. The noise resonates throughout the whole library"

A noise proof ceiling has now been installed above the Starbucks coffee shop on the ground floor of Cregan Library. This will help to minimise any noise disturbances travelling up through the library

"Chairs around the library are quiet low. More new chairs needed"


 

We have recently replaced some of our older style chairs from the O’Reilly Library in lieu of new and robust chairs. We have also provided every available individual study space with a chair on the 1st and 2nd floors creating a total of 738 individual study spaces.
