Getting away from it all: introducing 3rd Space

3rd Space is a study space set apart from the main library on the first floor of the Students’ Union building.  This cathedral stands as a monument to chilled out study, group work and mind-broadening discussions.  The quirky indoor beach area complete (last time we checked) with deckchairs, pool tables and brightly coloured picnic tables, is a great place to get out of a rut and see things from an entirely new perspective.  The comfortable diner-style seating throughout the rest of the space is an extension of the library’s social learning space – somewhere you can escape your usual surroundings to work with others or on your own.  The high-speed campus wifi covers 3rd Space and help is but a button or screen tap away with 24/7 online chat, so you never need be out of reach of a librarian if the need arises.

There is a discounted Starbucks coffee outlet and the Waterhole Bar downstairs, and you are welcome to bring food and drink into 3rd Space (just please keep the tables clean!).
