Food and drink

This site also has vending machines, hot water taps, microwave, and kitchenette facilities. Other library sites have café facilities available within the wider building.

Main Library refurbished top floor now open


On the ground floor of the Main Library is the CreateSpace, which provides equipment and resources to make different creative pursuits accessible to as many students as possible, removing cost and space barriers.

This allows students to try something different and build skills in areas broader than just what they are studying in class. We have facilities such as 3D printers, power tools and digital embroidery machinery.

It is also recognised that being creative can help with wellbeing and mental health, so the space is also a place for students to relax and de-stress by picking up an activity which promotes mindfulness such as colouring in, jigsaw puzzling and sewing.

See the CreateSpace website for more details on available equipment and supplies.
