  • Shhhh! Silent PC Room in Bay Library

    In response to student feedback, Bay Library’s PC Room 2 will be for silent study from today. We will trial this for the term, so please send your comments to engineeringlib@swansea.ac.uk to help us decide if this should be a permanent arrangement. You can also fill in one of our comments cards, which are available near the entrance of the library.

    PC Room 2 is in the South Wing, closest to the beach. It is available to those who would like to work quietly on a PC. Signs are on display to show that it is for silent study only. If you are working on a group project or would like to talk to each other, please find another space in the library to work at. We ask that all students cooperate with this during the trial period.

    The two silent study rooms in the North Wing are also still available. There are no PCs in these rooms, though there are plugs and USB ports available to connect your devices.

    If you have any questions please email engineeringlib@swansea.ac.uk or ask at the Information Desk.
