To relax and refocus, it is really important to take the time to have a break.
If you need to leave your desk for more than a few minutes, please use the "Take A Break" software (icon on your desktop), which will lock your PC with an onscreen countdown for 40 minutes. You will be advised to save your work. This will show other students that you are coming back. If you do not come back, the software will log you out.
Making sure you eat well and stay hydrated is important.
A vending machine is available on the ground floor of the Library.
The Stockwell Street Café opens Monday to Friday 8am - 8pm and at weekends 10am - 5pm. Please note that from 5th - 26th April, Stockwell Street Café will be open Monday- Friday 8am - 5pm and at weekends 10am to 5pm as usual.
Core Library staff leave at 21:00 when our external company Reassurance staff come on duty. They will be working shifts through to 08:00; the University security staff will staff the main reception as usual. Reassurance staff will always do their best to help you, but they can only offer assistance to a certain level; you may need to wait until core library and IT staff are on duty at 09:00 am if you need help of a specialist nature.
Safezone is the university's mobile app that allows all students and staff to alert, contact and directly speak to the Security team in the event of an emergency.
If you or someone else ever need assistance in an emergency, simply tap the alert button and the Security Control Room will be immediately notified and your location will be shared with them. Using your location and personal profile, the Security team can respond immediately to your specific needs.Once an alert is opened, you can also either call or direct message a Security guard. If possible and safe to do so, you can provide further details on what you need and how they can best help.
SafeZone uses geofencing to cover every campus and halls of residence. As long as your phone is connected to Wi-Fi or mobile data, there is now a simple and clear way of getting help wherever you need it.
