James Joyce Library Level 3 Refurbishment Project

James Joyce Library Level 3 Refurbishment Project

The entire third floor in the James Joyce Library is being redeveloped into a comfortable, modern learning space for our users. It will be designed to meet the learning needs of our diverse student cohort. To minimize disruption to our users, the work will be completed in phases over a 6 month period.



A variety of planned study spaces for Level 3








Architect's proposed design of the new Level 3




We are changing these spaces



The new space will provide:

  • Formal & informal learning spaces
  • A variety of comfortable seating
  • Silent study area
  • Seating at windows, maximising views & access to natural light
  • Standing height desks & adjustable tables
  • Careful acoustic management
  • maximum access to natural light will be prioritised.



We will maximize the number of new study spaces, by:

  • Moving print materials to store or to other floors.

  • Relocating the staff to other offices
