Study Spaces in JCU Libraries

The library buildings in Townsville and Cairns have different zones on each floor.

Please choose a zone that is appropriate for your study needs, and remember that the library is a shared space.

Our patrons are expected to comply with our Client Services Charter, the Library Use Policy, and the Acceptable Use Policy for university facilities.

At all times you should ensure that your valuables are not left unattended.

Food and drink in the library 


When using the study spaces in the library, please ensure your food is “library friendly”. 

  • Cold, quiet food (such as sandwiches and sushi) and covered drinks are welcome on all floors of the library, as long as they do not disturb other library users. 
  • Hot, noisy or “aromatic” food is welcome in the cafe, kitchenette and outdoor areas. 

Please help us keep our spaces clean and tidy by: 

  • Putting your rubbish in the bins provided 
  • Cleaning up after yourself 
  • Letting us know if something needs our attention
