The new facility will enhance the student experience by offering a flexible space in which you can study, meet, socialise and get creative – either individually or as groups and societies.

With the newly refurbished space set to open in early 2018, we are keen to hear your views about how you might want to use it.

We’ll be in the Singleton Park Library on Wednesday 1 November to talk to you about the new facility and to hear your feedback – please drop in and see us at any time between 11am and 2pm.

We look forward to seeing you!
