Sometimes, we all need to take some time-out. The University has a network of quiet spaces on campus. These are available to staff and students.

  • The Peace Gardens located behind the Accommodation Office, this is a quiet outdoors space in the centre of campus with seating
  • The Students’ Union Council Chambers – To access this quiet space please ask the staff working downstairs in the SU who will be happy to help
  • Student Advice - To access this quiet space please ask at the Student Advice reception in the Cornerstone Building
  • The Library Rest Room - To access this quiet space, which is a windowless room with a sink, easy chair, ambient light and first aid couch, please ask at the Student Advice Reception Desk or the Library Service Desk
  • The Library Nook – A comfy armchair, footrest and blanket available on the first floor of the Library (at the far end of the book shelves, next to the fire exit)
  • Prayer, Well-being and Relaxation Room – Located on the ground floor of the Skinner building in room 12 (this room has adjustable lighting)
  • The Snug – Look for the quiet space sign in The Snug space outside the University Chapel (ground floor Skinner building)
