In the Coppice Building you will find our student social spaces; The Student Hub and Common Room. They are a great place to chill out and meet friends between lessons. There’s also lots of enrichment activities going on at the college which you can get more information on here: “What Else Can I do?”
Our Student Hub is the livelier of the two social spaces, with a number of activities available. As well as lots of soft seating, the student hub houses:
• Table football
• Computer games (Wii)
• Table games
• Music channels
• Computer access
If you want a bit of peace and quiet or simply a place to chill and eat lunch, the student common room in the coppice building is a more laid back affair. We also have small ‘chill out zones’ dotted around the campus and number of places to grab a bite to eat and relax.
Health and fitness are an important part of life at Accrington and Rossendale College. Many of our students take advantage of our new sports complex, whether that be as a member of our gym for massively reduced prices, playing football on the 3G sports pitch or booking the sports courts for badminton, basketball or even trampolining. If you have an hour to kill between lessons it’s a great place to work up a sweat without leaving the campus. The complex houses:
• A fitness suite with up-to-date equipment
• Sports science lab
• Four court sports hall capable of hosting a wide range of sporting activities
• 3G football pitch
Stop by the restaurant, shop and bakery for when you need some fuel before your afternoon lessons begin. You can grab some grub from what is arguably the best food in the borough. If you have a bit of time, you can sit in and have lunch, or if you are in a rush you can grab a sandwich, soup, salad, or hot meal to go from the shop along with freshly baked bread, cakes and biscuits.
It’s approaching the weekend, you have a calendar jam packed with social events and you want to look your best. You can nip into our salon for a range of hair and beauty treatments at a time to suit you between lessons. Plus, we offer students and their friends amazing prices! Perfect!
