Study seats at AU Library

Finding study seats

AU Library offers the opportunity to make use of study seats at the majority of our libraries. There are differences across the individual libraries as to whether study seats should be reserved and booked in advance, or whether they are free to use on an ad hoc basis. Also, remember that AU Library offers the possibility of booking group working rooms or booking study carrels during your writing a thesis.
