Across all of our Colleges we have an extensive range of academic and recreational facilities to give you the opportunity to make the most of your studies as well as your time off.
The Learning Centre
The learning centre is a large, open-plan area on each site providing an excellent range of learning materials and facilities to support students and staff in finding the resources and information needed for their courses. We aim to provide a service that fully supports students with their studies. We provide a variety of traditional library resources, including books, magazines, DVDs and newspapers, offer support in using the facilities and the College subscribes to a wide range of online resources which you can access via the Student Portal. We also offer inductions to the network and learning centre facilities and at times offer study skills and research sessions. All students who are enrolled at the College are entitled to use the learning centre.
You will be able to use our top-of-the-range computers to aid you with your course and have access to a number of additional benefits including the Internet, your own College email account, CD-ROMS and the latest software packages. A full introduction to the computing facilities and the Student Portal will be given when you enrol. The Student Portal is an innovative system which provides you with all the latest bulletins that will affect your life at college, including College policies, timetable and attendance information, student services and benefits.
Sports and Fitness
Use the broad range of equipment from weights and toning machines to cardio vascular apparatus in our specialist Sports and Fitness Centre to ensure that you get an overall workout. Our friendly staff are always available to make sure that you get all the advice and help you need to improve your fitness and exercise safely. All students studying for six hours a week or more can use the facilities completely free of charge during term-time between the hours of 9am and 5pm. Outside of these hours, students can join at a reduced rate.
Multi-faith Prayer Room
All staff and students have access to a quiet, multi-faith prayer room where they can practice private worship.
You can choose from a large selection of main dishes, salads, cakes and sweets, most of which are homemade in our Cafeteria. We offer a varied assortment and try to cater for all dietary needs. The Cafeteria makes an excellent place to socialise and is available to all staff and students throughout the day and into the evening.
Student Common Room
Outside of classes and tutorials, you can unwind with friends in the Common Room, which is specifically for student use and is equipped with various snack machines, a table tennis table and a pool table.
