A multi-million pound refit and state-of-the-art equipment

We have invested a considerable amount of time and money to ensure that our students have excellent technology to support their studies. We have a policy of replacing equipment every four years and a full overhaul of student facilities took place in summer 2008.

We recently undertook a multi-million pound project to refit all our lecture theatres and many seminar rooms with state-of-the-art audio-visual equipment. In addition, the library at the Northampton Square site has recently been extensively refurbished. It now contains group study rooms with standalone presentation equipment, collaborative working areas known as ‘Technobooths’ and a ‘Sandpit’ area to showcase new technologies.

Internet access is available for all, including in our halls of residence.
