Relaxation spaces in the Libraries

Each campus library has a relaxation space where you can take some time out from your studies to relax in comfortable seating and enjoy the wellbeing benefits of our indoor plants.

We have provided puzzles, jigsaws, craft materials and colouring sheets and pens to help you to de-stress and explore your creative side.
