Looking for a calm quiet space to chill out and take the pressure off?
Try the Calm Zone on Floor 5, where you'll find comfy chairs and a peaceful vibe - we've removed the PCs, so you can relax, recharge and give your brain a break! It's in a silent area, so you can sit and chill, be mindful, or even read something from our HudReads collection of books for leisure.
In need of some refreshment?
Head to Scholar's Rest, where you can enjoy food and hot drinks within the library. There's a vending machine, a microwave, and comfy seating in this area next to the Music Library on Floor 5.
