How to use the co-labs

Did you know about the 16 collaborative group study spaces (Co-labs) in TSDRL? 

Each of them can seat up to 7 people and has a PC, plasma screen, power sockets and headphone ports.   

They are located on Floors 3-6 in the NW corner of the building (turn right when you come out of the lifts!). They operate on a first-come, first-served basis, but with priority for groups of 3 or more.   

If your group can’t find a space, and see a Co-Lab being used by only one or two individuals, please do feel free to come and tell library staff. We will ask the other library users to re-locate and help them find a space.  

You may also like to make use of the new wireless ‘Airplay’ function, which allows you to display content from your device on the large screen. Simply press the Airplay button and follow the on-screen instructions.
