Learning Resource Centre

In response to comments from students in both the National Student Survey and the QMU Internal Survey, we have made available two further quiet study rooms, 1123a and 1123b.  We have also provided two completely silent study rooms, 1121 and 1122.  In addition, our existing four quiet study rooms (1093 to 1096) are now available 24/7. 

 As we have extended our quiet study provision, so too our group study spaces, by changing the use of the Academic Reserve (1162) into a large space for group study.  This room is also open 24/7.
