What the students say<br />“The facility is absolutely brilliant…they’ve got so many computers, quiet study areas..”<br />“I used to come here every day, about 10 at night, and leave at 4 in the morning, because it’s open 24 hours a day, 365 days and I like to study at night”<br />“It’s got so many computers and it’s got a funky design as well, which is always helpful and pleasing to the eye”<br />“..it’s really colourful, which is really important I think, for the moment that you are studying”<br />“If I feel like studying, I get to the quiet space. If I feel like just chilling out, I go for a coffee downstairs, which is just really, really good”<br />“You can study at peace over there and the building is state of the art – I think it’s one of a kind”<br />
