A place to study

Students in the Library

Our campus is made for learning. Our library, in the heart of campus, has 1,300 technology-enabled workspaces and is built around a central atrium filled with natural light - home to our library's indoor tree.

As well as our library, you can head to the Learning Zone for relaxed group working spaces available 24/7, a learning lab for computers and printers, or to our woodland pods when you feel like a calm space away from it all.
