24-hour study spaces on campus

Are you looking to access university study space and computers after hours? If so, you’ll need to make sure your ID card is activated for out of hours access.

Your ID card is an important part of campus life and it’s essential that you have it with you at all times. It serves as your official identification; it also enables you to easily access your print credit when using the printers on campus and allows you to borrow books and other resources from the library.

Another benefit of your student ID card is to give 24-hour admission to certain study areas, but you’ll need to make sure your ID card is activated for this out of hours access.

The process for activating your ID card for out of hours access is very straightforward.  Simply take your ID card to the Security team, who are based at both St John’s and City Campus reception areas.  The Security teams are available 24-hours a day, 7 days a week.

Security will enable your card to allow access to the two 24-hour study areas at the University of Worcester. These are located:

  • Lower ground floor computer room in Charles Hastings (City Campus) 
  • Ground floor study room and first floor computer rooms in Peirson Study & Guidance Centre (St John’s Campus)

If your card has not been activated and you find yourself locked into one of these study spaces, you can phone reception on 01905 855000.

Having an activated ID card for out of hours access can be incredibly useful if you ever find yourself needing to use these study areas late at night or on weekends when the campus is closed. So don’t forget to take a few minutes and get yours activated today!

If you haven’t collected your ID card, or have lost your card and need a replacement, please see the firstpoint webpage for more guidance.
