Caulfield Library update: available study spaces and computers

The good news is large sections of levels 3 and 4 of Caulfield Library have been completed, and are now open for use. While new furniture is still to arrive, these areas offer an insight into what the interior will look like upon completion of the library’s refurbishment.

From week 6, levels 1 and 2 (except for the entry) will be closed for construction. The entry into the library will be moved closer to the bridge link to Building K.

There has been a reduction in seating and student computers. There are currently 400 study seats and 70 computers, down from 750 and 160 respectively. Wireless and power are available in the library so it’s advisable to bring your own device.

Alternative study spaces

Check the alternative study spaces on campus, including the 24/7 computer labs.

For all students:

Building C Level 1 lounge = 140 spaces

With reduced computer availability in Caulfield Library, a number of computers have been dedicated to express printing. Do plan ahead when you need to print something and especially when you are meeting a deadline. Expect a printing queue so allow sufficient time.

Service points and collections

The information point will be next to the new temporary entrance on level 2 and the research and learning point for drop-ins will be located on level 3. The collections will be housed on levels 3 and 4.
