Check the floor plans of each campus for locations:

City East | City West | Magill | Mawson Lakes

Please don't leave any personal items unattended in the Library, make sure you return all Library items and leave the space tidy when you go.

The Library accepts no responsibility for loss of personal items, and anything left unattended may be moved by Library staff.


Study rooms

Each campus library has a range of bookable study spaces including individual and group study rooms. Most are equipped with computers and whiteboards and some contain additional equipment including smartboards.

Check the details of individual study rooms and make a booking on the booking pages or by using the Student App


Group study zones have large communal tables, whiteboards and other equipment for group discussion and collaboration. Feel free to talk, but be considerate of others who are working in these areas.

Some areas have been designated as silent or quiet study zones for individual study. Please switch your phone to silent, use headphones with the volume turned down and keep conversation to a minimum – please leave the area if you need to talk.

If you find students are disrupting your study in the quiet or silent areas, you should speak with them directly and point out the "silent" or "quiet" signs to them. If they continue to disrupt you, please contact library staff and we will be happy to assist you.

Informal zones and lounges have comfortable seating for when you need a break from study.

There are computer pools and individual PCs for student use in all libraries. Check the Pool Availability webpage to see which computers are free.

Training rooms and collaborative teaching spaces also contain PCs and are free for students to use when they are not booked. Check the room schedule on or near the door.

Adaptive Technology Suites are available at each of the metropolitan campus libraries and include specialised computer facilities for use by UniSA students with disabilities.

Once you have registered for this service with Disability Services, you can access the suites with your student card. More information is available through the Disability Hub.

You make a booking up to a week ahead, for a maximum of 4 hours per day (2 x 2 hour bookings).

Multi access suites have been established in all metropolitan libraries with a modified version available at 101 Currie Street.
