Welcome to the Learning Zone

The Learning Zone is a flexible student space at the heart of the University designed to support all types of Learning. The space is excellent for group work where discussion and interaction is important but equally good if you want to study independently in an informal environment.

The zone has 9 pods, some with interactive technology, which can be booked for group project work, practicing presentations or course work meetings. Alternatively, in other parts of the Learning Zone you are free to turn up on spec and rearrange the furniture to suit your study needs.

The Learning Zone is located in the centre of the University just off Alexandra Square and is open 24/7. You will need your University card to access the Learning Zone between 7pm and 8am.
