For alternative quiet study areas on campus, check the Library Extension and Revitalisation (LER) Project website for details.

Strict silence must be observed in quiet study areas.  Staff patrolling will remind users discussing in quiet study space to move to group study areas. If you are disturbed by users talking in quiet study areas, please report it to any of our service counters. A Library staff member will then be dispatched to address the issue in the moment.

Examination Papers Database to Help with Revision
The PolyU Examination Paper Database collects examination papers received from academic departments of the University. Try a past paper to get familiar with the question formats, and time yourself for different types of questions.

Priority for PolyU Students in Using Library Study Space
