Excited for exams?😏Here are some study spots around campus…

Hi there! It has been quite some time since my last blog! It is nice seeing that Hilary and Stephanie enjoyed their trips! 😆

How did you guys find your holidays? I had so much fun travelling around Germany and Belgium! Please stay tuned with my next post about my trip😉 we all know that exam time is here… Are you finding some quiet area to study? Getting sick of your usual study place? Then let me share some favourite spots for revision on the campus.

I believe the library is always the first place that comes to your mind!  Our 5-floors school library is opened 24/7. There are various group and quiet study areas located on different floors. PC is available everywhere and you can always borrow laptop on the first floor to facilitate your study. Get some refreshments at the convenient store Simply Fresh which is located on the ground floor of the library.

No worries if you can’t find space at the library! You can try going to the Hive, which is located next to the Lecture theatre within Phillip Marchant Building, opposite to the old student services building. It is designated for students to socialize and study in the open seating areas. Kitchenette with microwave and water tab can also be found there. It opens every day from 8:30am-11:30pm.

Fancy to get a coffee break? Take a seat at the coffee shops on campus!
