Learning commons


Access to study spaces and our physical collections is strictly limited to Charles Sturt University staff and students only, via swipe card access. Social distancing is mandatory.

You can still access support online from the Library staff no matter where you are studying.

Learning Commons

Our learning commons spaces are open, however there are some changes to how they operate.

  • Learning commons open 24 hours
  • Your student card will be needed to access the spaces
  • Social distance - queue or work in a space with a 1.5m gap between you
  • Don’t shake hands or exchange physical greetings
  • Practice good hygiene – wash your hands regularly
  • We have increased cleaning in high traffic areas
