Open Research Areas (ENG-2053 and ENG-3053)

For requests relating to the open research rooms (e.g. request a desk for new researcher, access issues, etc), please contact Serena Lawless (serena.lawless@universityofgalway.ie). Please note any researcher wishing to use this area MUST request a desk through their PI by filling out this form.

Building and open research area access times are as follows:


Mon - Fri: 7am to 10pm

Sat, Sun and Bank Holidays: 9am to 6pm


Researchers cannot work in the open research area outside of these times. PIs should ensure that none of your researchers are accessing the building / research area outside of these times. Out-of-hours access is not provided for desk work.


Researchers / PIs must ensure that vacated desks are left free of all belongings / equipment so that the desk can be used by incoming researchers. Researchers must manage locker keys themselves. If a key is missing they must organise one themselves through a locksmith.


Lab Access Requests

For requests relating to lab access, PIs should contact the relevant Lab Manager(s) and request access. Once agreed, access will be provided by the Security Liaison person in the related area (listed below).
