Designed by you and for you

Modern, flexible ground floor seating“The library has improved [in] the past three years and has developed for further facilities. I can now enter the library without worrying about finding a seat as it has been expanded so well.”

Your new library is designed around the way you showed us you want to work.  A partitioned ground floor with rows of desks have given way to a flexible learning space with a café at its heart, movable furniture connected to power and data and 350 loanable full-size laptops.  High shelves have given way to a light, airy space with clear views out onto leafy Ravelin Park and the pleasant courtyard garden.

We have found space for more study spaces every year to keep up with the increasing demand, installed drop-in meeting pods and gave up our old meeting room and offices to give you more sound proofed spaces free from distractions, which you told us were your favourite single new feature of the ground floor refurbishment last summer.  With everything you need for a day’s learning all in one place, you need only leave when you want a change of scene or a break.
