The Health Sciences Library does indeed serve the Faculty of Health Sciences students as its primary users. This is because the FHS educational programs require that their students work in small groups; as a result, the Library was renovated to meet their needs. We are not discriminating against other students, including yourself, but we are trying to meet the special needs of our students. The rooms are only bookable by students (not faculty or staff), and only for them to work in groups.
I understand your frustration in trying to find suitable study space. There are no restrictions on any of our other facilities or services. I don't know if health sciences students book rooms in the other libraries; I have no control over the rules for the other libraries on campus, but you could take this up with the University Library.
