Quiet Study Area and Manresa Hall
On top of a 24 hour computer room the College also has two dedicated quiet study areas. The first can be found outside the Gilbert Scott lecture Theatre on the ground floor just past the College vending machines. This area has a few dedicated computers for use and space for students to study in a quiet environment. During term time you’ll also be able to use the grand and ornate Manresa Hall for quiet study.
Manresa Hall is also known to host formal gatherings of the College on rare occasions, so be sure to check them out if you get the chance.
