Learning Resources Centre (LRC)
Fresh and modern, the LRC is a great place
to study outside of classes. If you need to
get a project finished, or meet classmates for
some group study, there are workspaces and
computers available for your use. There are over
30,000 items in the LRC, including a growing
number of e-resources. Having the books you
need online means you can learn at home or
wherever you go – something that is proving
very popular with our current students.
If you are studying a course such as Engineering
or Construction, our realistic working
environments will help you hone your technical
skills. Get your hands on a real aeroplane engine
or practice your technique in workshop bays
designed for carpentry, electrical work and more.
Yourspace Common Room
The hub of the College community, this room is
your dedicated space to relax between classes.
It’s also a great place to meet new friends on
different courses, as it is a communal space for
all students on campus.
