Study spaces open under Alert Level 2

Study spaces are available on every University of Auckland campus if your home environment is not suitable.

Important note

Study spaces will not be open for use on Queen's Birthday, Monday 1 June.

What you need to know

Study spaces will be available to students in-person on a first-come, first serve basis from Monday 18 May. Please note that each space has a limited capacity. You must bring your Campus Card as identification to use any space on campus.

All spaces will have a mixture of desks with computers, desks with direct power points, or desks without power. We will do our best to seat you at a space that suits your needs. However, we may recommend an alternative location if we do not have availability.

We are currently unable to accommodate groups in these spaces for shared study.

Process for using spaces

Here’s what you can expect when you arrive at a study space on campus:

  1. You will need to register yourself at the designated space using the Check-IN service
    • The Check-IN service is only available on-campus. You cannot register ahead of time and reserve a study space. Spaces are available on a first-come, first serve basis in-person.
  2. If there is a queue, please line up using the physical distancing signs, as indicated on the ground 2m apart.
  3. At the entrance, you will be greeted by a University staff member, who will walk you through the Check-IN instructions. Please make sure you are familiar with the Check-IN Health & Safety Requirements before arriving. You will not be allowed to use the study space if you do not accept the health and safety requirements.
  4. Please let the staff know what type of space you require (e.g. you require a computer or have brought your own device and/or whether you need access to a power point)
  5. Once your access has been approved, the staff member will assign you a designated workstation within the study space. For access to the Disability Resource Room, email Student Disability Services in advance for approval.
  6. A hand sanitiser station will be available, which we request that you use upon entry. Please make sure you are familiar with How to stop the spread document before arriving, which will be posted as you walk-in.
  7. You will then be able to make your own way to your assigned workstation. At your workstation there will be a friendly greeting and reminder about best practices for using your workstation and the study space in order to comply with NZ Government regulations at Alert Level 2.
  8. While within the study space, you will be allowed to leave your things at your allocated workstation to take a break, use the bathroom, go outside to get fresh air, or grab something to eat or drink. We ask that while you move around, you follow the designated signage and How to stop the spread document to maintain appropriate physical distancing and do not enter spaces that are not open.

For help with assessments

Reminder: if you need help with assessments, Library and Learning Services has support that's available remotely from anywhere!
