Refreshment room

The Refreshment Room, located on the first floor of the Clifford Whitworth building has been transformed into a tranquil oasis, where students can go and wind down from a day of study on one of the many comfortable and inviting sofas and chairs. With a muted colour palette, plant life and a kitchen area, the spacious room is ideal for relaxing, and taking in the views across Peel Park campus.

Please note: You will need your library card to access the Refreshment Room. 

Lady Hale – The Cube

The Cube offers an area of study suited to a variety of requirements. A mix of vibrant new furniture allows students to work alone or collaboratively with the addition of single study pods, group booths, study rooms and seminar rooms with the latest Audio-Visual equipment.
