We have a range of specialist facilities available to you as a student to help you get the most out of your College experience.

We have carefully designed the spaces around our College campus to ensure that you are able to study in a way that is suited to you.

Learning Resource Centre (LRC) and Study Spaces

At College, there is a lot more emphasis than at school on independent study, and our facilities give you the space, flexibility and equipment you need to continue your learning outside of the classroom. Find out more about our Learning Resource Centre and Study Spaces.
