GCU is committed to providing both formal and informal learning spaces which meet the needs of all of our students. Those students looking for a quiet space to study or relax alone might try any of the following spots on campus:

Level 4 of the Saltire Centre

This level of the library is restricted for silent studying, and is usually not as busy as the other floors in the library. A height adjustable table (with hand crank mechanism) is situated on the left hand wall, when entering from the stairwell.

Private Study Rooms                                  

Bookable private study rooms are available on the ground floor of the Saltire Centre. These are available to any student, and can be booked via the Library Desk.

Campus Life Lounge 

Located on level 1 of the George Moore building, the Campus Life Lounge often provides a relatively quiet study & relaxation space for students. Please be aware that events, which can be noisy and busy, are occasionally hosted in this space.

The Zen Garden

This is located on the ground floor of the CEE Building next to Roots Café. This is a public space but is often calm and quiet and a great spot to relax in.
