Some innovative ways universities have introduced or are thinking of introducing to help relieve the stress of exams include: bubble wrap popping stations (University of Leicester student union),petting zoos (University of Bath) and even bouncy castles and massages (PETA’s alternatives to petting zoos).
Here at LSHTM library, we may not have puppies, kittens or bubble wrap to ease your exam woes and worries but we do have quiet study spaces in both the Reading Room and the Barnard Room areas or if you prefer to study in groups, there is the Wellcome Gallery.
We also have laptops you may borrow for use in the library.
For extra comfort, we have leather upholstered chairs (but get there early), plus atmospheric plants and gorgeous vistas.
If you log into your Moodle account you may access previous years’ exam questions too.
Our opening hours are:
Monday – Friday: 8.30 am -11 pm
Saturday: 9 am – 8 pm
Sunday: 11 am – 8pm
