The University of Sussex have launched a new service which allows students to view the availability of study rooms on campus.
The service, accessible through http://www.sussex.ac.uk/its/studyspace/ is part of a move by the University to try and make it easier for students to find unused rooms on campus in which they can work.
Students' Union education officer, Bethan Hunt, said "I think this is a great scheme to help students find a quiet place to study. Campus can feel really busy at times and this is a great way to make the most of the space we have."
"We look forward to the expansion of the scheme to be part of the Sussex Mobile App and to include showing students where free computers on campus are."
"It is really important that the University continues to create quiet spaces to study in order to match their growth plans, otherwise the quality of students' experience at Sussex will decrease. "
