Provide more enclosed, quiet study spaces (e.g cubicles on the silent floor) for students who do not like to work at home nor in open spaces

Extra Information: Too often I go up to the silent floor on the library to do work but can't find any free cubicles for me to work in - I think it would be great if more of these were provided; people who have social anxiety, such as myself, or just who do not like to work in open spaces would benefit from this as it would provide more space for them to feel comfortable and calm.
