New social space open for undergraduates

common room in the School of Computing

A new common room has opened in time for students to relax and collaborate in during the exam term. The room, for the exclusive use of Computing undergraduates, will be open from 8.00-19.00 Monday to Friday.

The common room on the ground floor of the Cornwallis building in Canterbury is the latest change in a series of updates to the building to make it more modern and welcoming. The common room is deliberately close to the placements team, employability and marketing team, KITC and The Shed, helping to create a real student hub at the heart of the building and making it easier for students to find help in any of these areas.

Head of School, Professor Richard Jones, said: “This new space is good way of welcoming back the undergraduate students and giving them their own relaxing space at a very busy time in the academic year. We hope that they will enjoy their own area with room to chat, eat and even study if they wish. And of course we wish all of our students the very best of luck with their upcoming exams.”

The next update will see the School student administration team move downstairs to be nearer to the other student services.
