Reminder: Use study break cards

The conducive and comfortable study spaces in our libraries have made them a favourite of many students. Sometimes this means you may not be able to find anywhere to sit in the library. To help manage the space pressure, we have trialled the study break cards at Caulfield and Matheson libraries this semester. You can respectfully move items to one side and occupy an unattended desk if there is no study break card.

The University’s Study Spaces page is definitely the place to look for other alternative spaces if you can’t find a library seat.
