City Students’ Union has been working with City, University of London around the closure of the Graduate Library space that occurred in September 2016. Postgraduate students were vocal in their concerns around this action being taken due to the construction taking place on Sebastian Street which will further improve the experience of students at City in future years. After much discussion in meetings between the SU and the University, we are pleased to announce that some alternative dedicated Postgraduate study space has been allocated in the following areas:
10 places available in CLG41 for Engineering students and 15 places in A304 for Computer Science students – All of these desks are hot-desks and hence require students to not leave any belongings behind at these desks when leaving them.
We are also pleased to announce that there are now 30 extra hot-desk spaces in the Myddleton building for use by PhD students from the School of Arts and Social Sciences (SASS).

This is a big win as the original Graduate Library had 50 spaces in it, but together we have found 55 spaces for students around the University.
We know that there are still Postgraduate students from other schools and courses that require dedicated study space, so please rest assured that the Students’ Union will continue to work with the University to ensure that there is dedicated Postgraduate study space for the courses which don’t yet have it.
