These study spaces must be pre-booked and are available Monday-Friday, 8am-6pm. You can book up to four slots per week (one per day) in this building. Please note, these spaces will be closed Bank Holiday Monday 3 May and Monday 31 May 2021.
Unfortunately, we are unable to guarantee access to power points at your designated study space, and it will be highlighted on your booking confirmation email if your allocated space does not have this access. If you intend to work on a laptop, please make sure it is fully charged before you visit. Dunelm House is on the University Wi-Fi network so you should be able to sign in like anywhere else in University estates.
The space will be monitored regularly throughout the day by Durham Students’ Union staff.
Visiting Dunelm House
Please follow all current health and safety measures implemented across our study spaces:
Please note, this is a self-service area – should you have any queries during your time here, please speak to a member of Student Union staff. If you have a library-specific query whilst you are there, you can contact our Virtual Enquiry Desk.
Covid Marshals will be on hand to support our safety measures and to help you during your visit. They will greet you as you enter the building and may check your booking confirmation or remind you of our safety measures. They can help you to find your seat and direct you through our one-way systems. They will routinely walk around the building to be available to you and to support the measures we have in place. Please do speak to them if you have any questions or need support - they’re here to help and to make sure we’re all staying as safe as possible.
If you have made a booking and you decide you don’t need it or are unable to attend, please cancel your booking to allow others to make use of it. We need you to do this as soon as you can to let other students use unwanted study space timeslots. Simply go to the ‘My Bookings’ tab on the Space Bookings app and cancel your booking.
To support our users requiring study spaces, we have introduced penalties to those who regularly do not use their booked slot.
If you ever need any help in cancelling a booking or have a genuine reason for not attending your booking, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have any problems when booking, please contact our Virtual Enquiry Desk.
