Learning Spaces

The learning spaces are technology-rich and support high levels of interactivity and engagement. They are flexible, adaptable and reconfigurable. High tech facilities will support teaching and provide an opportunity to showcase our educational use of technologies and research.

Specialist learning spaces will also fill a multi-function role as general teaching spaces. Use of these designated skills labs will be optimised to ensure efficient space utilisation.

Library

No longer defined by the number of books it has on its shelves, the Library is now a living social space for our students that prioritises customer services, academic literacy and facilitates wider public engagement.

As a dynamic, flexible space the Library will inspire learning, promote well-being and support the different ways people want to work – hosting a range of important associated services such as Mathematics Education Support Hub (MESH), Peer Assisted Study Sessions (PASS), MATES and The Academy.

Informal Learning

The building will provide extensive informal learning and social spaces for students and social and collaborative spaces for staff and partners.

Active social spaces will be incorporated throughout the building as well as an engaging function and events facility. We will continue to utilise agile workspaces, open-plan design and flexible meeting spaces.
