Student Centre

The Faculty student centre is a dynamic and flexible space for students.

Student centre

It was created in 2007 to house the Reinvention Centre, a Centre for Excellence in Teaching and Learning (CETL). Architect David Morriss, of Atkins, worked closely with staff in the School on drawing up detailed design work for the space. A group of seven second year Interior Architecture students met twice each semester to advise staff on the development of the space.


The Student Hub has various resources for student use including:

  • Large open-plan dynamic space
  • 25 nomadic workstations
  • Student centre

  • 2 'dalek' widescreen televisions with DVD and video recorders
  • Electronic 'mimeo' whiteboard
  • 2 projectors
  • Portable hearing aid loop
  • Printing facilities
  • Board room for 12 with video-conferencing and projector
  • Comfortable seating area where students can enjoy a hot or cold drink and relax.

Student support office

As of August 2010 the Student centre will also include the offices of the student support team.
