Students were involved with the design brief for the study space
Sanctuary study space now open
This month saw the opening of the Sanctuary, a vibrant new study room for students. The Sanctuary provides 180 study seats at the heart of the campus, as well as being a venue for major student-facing events like Welcome Week.
Formerly known as the Lower Exam Hall, the space will host Event Exeter managed conferences during the summer break, before returning to a study area for the new academic year in September. With its close proximity to other revision spaces such as the Forum Library, it will also be used for exams.
Jessica Gardner, Head of Library and Research Support, said: “We are delighted that the Sanctuary is open for our students to enjoy. Students were involved in the design brief and naming the Sanctuary via focus groups last Autumn. This led to a flexible layout with maximised study seats and a colourful look and feel using table top designs from Marrimeko, the designers whose chairs feature in La Touche Cafe in the Business School.”
