Exam period is upon us and like many of you, I have a ****** attention span. Revising at home means half an hour of actual revision and an hour and a half break to procrastinate or watch 24.

Which university libraries in Central London are available to go and revise in?
I don't plan on borrowing books but I do want to use the study areas for about a month to revise for my final year of A levels. I know that for LSE and Kings, there's quite a lengthy process to apply for an external visitors pass. What about UCL, for example? Can anyone please help me out?

Thanks for your time

Nope, not gonna happen. Perhaps your best bet is Senate House, and I'm not too sure on that. As for the individual colleges themselves, no chance. UCL has an extremely strict policy about non-students being on site. And I imagine so do the other colleges.

Don't you have a local library?

Are you 18 yet? If so the British Library is awesome.

And I think to go to UCL is about £5 a day.

At the present, UCL isn't allowing non-students to use the library. Students are first priority.

Thank you so much! This is the sort of library that I've been looking for to study in
