These are informal student areas where you can relax with friends during your free time. You can also play pool (Common Room at Quarles), listen to music, play board games, watch films, use the computers and talk to the Student Development Workers. They are always ready to support you with various issues, give information and refer you, if necessary, to more specialised agencies.
Throughout the year these student areas host various events and activities such as Diversity Workshops, Awareness Weeks (e.g. drug & alcohol awareness, sexual health awareness) and speakers from outside organisations. You can also pick up useful leaflets and literature.
