How to Book a room

Go to the library study room booking system here or via the Library webpage. You can also book using the University of Plymouth app.

  • Enter your University username and password and click Log in.
  • Select a room type and date from the drop down menus. Click on Continue.
  • Unavailable slots show as booked.
  • To book 1 hour; select the hour slot you require, click OK and click Confirm.
  • To book 2 hours or more; select one of the hour slots you require and click OK. Select the other hour slot you require and click OK. Click on Confirm. This is regarded as a block booking. You can only book two consecutive hour slots at a time. If you need to book more, click on Another Booking and repeat the process. A maximum of 12 bookings a week, per person, can be booked.
  • Details of your booking(s) will be displayed together with the unique PIN you will need to access the room. You will have a PIN for an hourly or block booking. Please make a note of this number.
  • A confirmation email will also be sent with the PIN. You will receive the email from Telepen not Plymouth University. Please note; the email will be sent to the email address that you have registered with your school.
  • Click Another booking to return to the home page or log out if you have finished.

View or cancel existing bookings

  • Enter your University username and password and click Log in.
  • Click on the View/cancel existing bookings link underneath.
  • Your booking date, time, room number and PIN will be displayed in a table.
  • To cancel a booking; click on the date and time link, click Yes and OK on the pop up message.
  • Click Back to return to the homepage.
  • Please cancel if you cannot make your booking.Failing to claim a booked room on 6 occasions will result in a 28 day suspension where you will be unable to make further bookings.

Accessing your booked room

  • Swipe your university card at the keypad unit next to the door and enter the four digit PIN assigned to the booking.
  • For group bookings, any member of the group can access the room as long as they use the correct PIN.
  • Should the room you have booked already be occupied, please go to the information desk on level 1 of the library.
  • You are able to leave the room during the booked period. However, please remember to take your student card and the PIN number assigned to the booking with you, as you will need these to re-access the room.
  • Should you wish to vacate the study room early, you are able to cancel the remaining booked hours on the study room booking system. 

Booking terms and conditions

  • A maximum of 12 bookings a week, per person, can be booked.
  • Each booking is for a maximum of 2 hours. Multiple bookings can be made back-to-back.
  • Bookings can be made up to 4 weeks in advance.
  • You must activate your booking by entering the PIN within the first 15 minutes. Failure to do this will result in the cancellation of your booking and will enable others to book your time slot.
  • A separate PIN is issued for each booking. Back-to-back bookings will each have a different PIN number which must be entered within the first 15 minutes of that booking start time.
  • Entering a study room early will be considered as a separate booking. You will still need to enter your original booking PIN number within the first 15 minutes of the session. Please note; the system works on an hour basis therefore if a booking is less than this, an hour will be deducted from your weekly allowance.
  • You can make a last minute booking at the study room door by following the on screen instructions displayed above the keypad. These bookings should be more than 15 minutes to a maximum of 2 hours at a time.
  • Failing to claim a booked room on 6 occasions will result in a 28 day suspension where you will be unable to make further bookings. Block bookings on the system are regarded as a single booking.
  • Rooms should be vacated promptly at the end of the booked period.
