Using Study Spaces at the Centre for Health Sciences - Covid 19: Booking your space

Guide to booking study spaces at CfHS and outline of protocols and safety measures

Booking Study Space at the Centre for Health Sciences

We are keen to provide study spaces for those with no alternative, suitable place to study. As with all organisations at this time, the requirement to keep our users and our staff safe is paramount. We have, therefore, only a very limited number of spaces and have had to restrict the amount of time that can be booked to allow slots to as many users as possible.

Booking is for SPACE ONLY – Users need to bring their own devices and be registered for either Eduroam or other Centre provided Wifi.


Procedure for booking a study space


Please email to request study space.  Please use your UHI or NHS e-mail address not a personal one.  Requests for study space can be made up to three days in advance.   Bookings are in set blocks (Mon- Fri 9am-1pm, 1pm-5pm and 5pm-8pm, Sat-Sun 9am-12 noon,12 noon-4pm ). Bookings can be requested for extended blocks of time - however this is subject to review.  Please note that in order to give the RFM Team to disinfect your study space there may be a slight delay whilst your station gets re-sanitised.  When you finish your session please inform RFM Reception of your departure.

Bookings can be made for any time up to 8:00 pm, Monday to Friday and 9am-4 pm Saturday and Sunday, but must be received by HHSL during office hours (9-5, Monday to Friday).

No printing is available at present.

Once you arrive at the Centre

Reception staff can direct you to the Study Rooms. You must scan the QR Code on arrival to register yourself for Test and Protect when entering the rooms. If you do not have a QR scanner on your phone, paper registration slips are available within the room to place into a box on the wall.  Trace and Protect details are kept for 3 weeks in secure locations.
