University Of Roehampton, London
The five-storey building will house 1,200 brand new study spaces and hundreds of thousands of books and research materials across nearly 8,000 metres of shelving. It will have electronic versions of text books, laptops available on loan, online journals and databases, a school-experience library, as well as an extensive children’s literature collection – plus our Garden Café, overlooking a newly landscaped Digby Stuart College campus.
Most significantly for students, more seating and study space will be available than is usual within academic libraries, with a study space for every eight students (compared with a national average of 1 to 10). There will also be dedicated group-study areas with PCs for presentation practice and power points at every desk, plus Wi-Fi throughout.
Overlooking London, students will be also able to take advantage of the views from the top floor of the Library which features Wembley Stadium, the London Eye and Canary Warf.
