Improvements and new features
- Improved water supply and drainage throughout the building
- Improved ventilation in the rooms
- State-of-the-art Dyson desk lights in the postgraduate taught reading room
- New energy-efficient lighting
- Gender neutral toilet suite with the very latest design in taps by Dyson – hands can be dried in 12 seconds at the sink with no need for users to move to a separate drying area and therefore no water dripped onto the floor.
Sumeera Ahmad, Student’s Union Vice President Education, comments: “I am really excited for students to start using all the new spaces made available to them! I hope they find the library to be the perfect environment in which they can study and learn.”
