Learning Lounge now open

Friday, 13 January 2017


The Learning Lounge - a new 24 hour collaborative space is now open in the Auchmuty Library.

The Library has renovated one of the old reading rooms in the Auchmuty Library to create a new, bright, light-filled space that is open for collaborative study 24 hours a day. Large windows opening onto the courtyard replace brick walls. Comfortable lounges and collaborative spaces replace outdated furniture. The area is designed to meet the changing study needs of current students by offering a range of different spaces including collaborative computer desks and group and individual study areas as well as fast WiFi, hot water and microwaves.

The innovative design uses green technology including movement sensing and 'daylight harvesting' light sensors that change according to the amount of ambient sunlight in the room to significantly reduce the energy required to light the room.
