The Garden Room is a space for student wellbeing and relaxation; it is situated on the Ground floor of the Information Commons.

The Garden Room offers students a comfortable, relaxing break from their studies, and also serve to encourage students to take regular study breaks.

We have worked closely with students and taken their suggestions and feedback to inform the furniture choices, resources and layout of the room.

It is hoped that by providing a calming environment, this will contribute towards greater student wellbeing and lower levels of stress and anxiety amongst those who use it, especially during assessment periods.

The space holds a number of books for recreational usage, to encourage students to read for pleasure, rather than just for study purposes and we are hoping that students will relax and take some time out from using their electronic devices.

If taking a break from studying in the Information Commons, please remember to use a study break pass when leaving your study space. 

Please note that in line with current regulations and guidelines, face coverings must be worn in the Garden Room.
