New Study Space: Amory Building
Over Summer 2012 a brand new study space will be created in the Amory Building.
Thanks to student input the space will have a mix of silent, quiet and group study facilities, and a total of c240 seats.
The new space will be open in time for Welcome Week 2012, right at the heart of the Amory Building.
The layout for the new study space has been designed following close consultation with students, through surveys and focus groups, and a design concept is available to view.
The space will be roughly divided into three sections and get quieter as you go further in. There will be:
• a small ‘drop down zone’ entrance area (printers, quick access to library catalogue and email, noticeboards)
• a series of small group rooms
• an open quiet area
• an enclosed silent study space
Students and academic staff are represented on the Project Stakeholder Group and we are currently consulting over ideas for a name for the new space.

The University is investing over £1 million to refurbish large sections of the Amory Building. This includes the new study centre (£500k), refurbished seminar rooms, an upgrade to the Parker Moot Room and new premises for the Law School (up to £700k).
The new premises for the Law School and the new study space are made possible because the Lasok Law Library will move into a completely refurbished and extended Main Library as part of the Forum Project.
By mid-September 2012, new and returning students will benefit from the new investments in Amory and the Forum, as well as additional quiet study space in The Sanctuary.
