COVID-19 and Study Space arrangements for academic year 2020/21
LIBRARY AND STUDY FACILITIES AT RCSI: Academic Year 2020-21
Ordinarily students can use RCSI libraries at either Beaumont or St Stephen’s Green campuses.
However, these are not ordinary times and complying with public health guidance on social distancing impacts the amount and availability of all spaces in RCSI such as lab, teaching, gym, restaurant and social spaces as well as library and study spaces. Library study space has decreased by 60-80% across sites because of government regulations.
To increase the availability of study spaces beyond the libraries, RCSI has identified and fitted out additional study environments in all RCSI campuses and the following access principles apply to both these and library study spaces.
For academic year 2020/21, students are strongly encouraged to use their own accommodation and their designated home-rooms as primary study spaces and to view library and other study spaces as supplementary study environments.
