The VU Library provides access to laptops, library seats and study rooms. Please note that study rooms can't be booked at the moment but you can book a library seat.

Find out how to book a laptop or a library seat in advance.

Book a laptop

Library’s laptops will be made available to students for an extended borrowing period under special circumstances. 

Students can contact the Library to check laptop availability and enquire about making a booking.

Book a library seat

Victoria University staff and students can book a seat on Level 2 of Footscray Park Library, Building P, or Level 2 of St Albans Library, Building 7. There is a mixture of seats with and without PCs.

The spaces are for study purposes only. There is no access to the collection, and COVID Safe conditions of entry apply.

On arrival at the library, you must 'check in' at the entrance of the library. There will be a staff member in attendance to assist if needed.

Book a library seat up to two weeks in advance.

Book a study room - booking not available

Study rooms can’t be booked at the moment.

Study Rooms are bookable using MyPC for up to 2 hours and up to 7 days in advance. Room bookings cannot be extended and usually one booking is allowed by a user.

Study rooms are only for group study only (two or more students). They are not for individual study. Study rooms can only be booked and used by VU students. They are not available for staff use.

Library staff reserve the right to cancel or re-allocate a booking, or ask someone to leave if the:

  • room is being used by an individual
  • room is being used for a purpose other than study
  • behaviour of users is inappropriate.

We strongly advise that you book in advance.
