The Student Centre & Library

Summer Closure

The Student Centre and Library (SC&L) will close this summer so that we can replace the air-conditioning system and for general refurbishment.
Last day the SC&L will be open: Sunday 28th July
SC&L will be closed: Monday 29th July to Monday 16th September
SC&L re-opens: Tuesday 17th September

The Student Centre is a friendly and sociable place for all students to study, relax and unwind.

Our library still makes up part of the Student Centre, but we also offer a much wider range of services and facilities in addition to this.

To become a member of the Student Centre please visit us on the mezzanine and speak to a member of the team.
