Academy Learning Zones
The Learning Zones are on-campus spaces designed for the enjoyment and benefit of The Academy’s members. The Learning Zones provide students with dedicated facilities in which they can socialise with other members, enjoy quiet study time or take part in events and a range of other activities organised by The Academy. Each Learning Zone is unique and contains comfortable seating and group study areas.
Operating hours vary for each Learning Zone. Please check with Campus Security.
Learning Zone Guidelines
The Academy provides its students with access to an Academy Learning Zone on some of our campuses (swipe access - using your student card). The Learning Zones are part-study, part-social spaces. Access to the Learning Zones is strictly limited to Academy students. Members who are found to be granting access to non-Academy members will immediately have their membership terminated and access to The Academy Learning Zones revoked.
Members are to treat every person they encounter in the Learning Zone with courtesy and respect. Discrimination or anti-social behaviour in any form will not be tolerated and may lead to members having their membership revoked. This includes:
- Theft of items provided by The Academy, including but not limited to consumables, stationery and furniture.
- Drawing unacceptable images on whiteboards.
- Damaging or destroying furniture in the Learning Zones, including throwing beanbags.
- Being loud, disruptive or disrespectful of other members.
All Learning Zone users are responsible for helping to minimise the spread of Covid-19. There are simple steps we all need to follow to be COVID-Safe, as outlined on the Staying Safe on Campus website.
Each Learning Zone has an occupancy limit that is posted on the entry door. Do not enter a room if this limit has been reached.

In case your swipe access is not working, please visit a Campus Security office, tell them you are an Academy member and have your swipe access permissions checked. If Security are unable to locate you on The Academy database, please have them call The Academy to confirm your membership status.
New Academy Members: At the start of semester it might take several weeks before your swipe access is activated, we thank you for your patience during this time.
