Student Central

Student Central transformed the Student and Library Services space at City Campus when it opened in September 2017 and continues to receive excellent feedback from students and visitors.

The multi-million pound investment has revamped the original 1969 Library into a light and airy space designed to host all of the award-winning support services that students need, in one place at the heart of campus. Student Central marks the next stage of the transformation of professional services dedicated to offering an outstanding student experience at Northumbria.

Ask4Help, located in the middle of Student Central, enables students to access face to face support around; accommodation, applying for jobs, assessments, change of student status, counselling, course information, disability, money and finance, using the University Library and more. The Student Central Commons area on the ground floor offers comfortable and informal spaces for group activity, and will host a range of events for students throughout the academic year, including employer presentations.

Student Central was enhanced further in September 2018 when Student Skills Centre was created. The flexible multifunctional space supports the delivery of a wide variety of group support by professional support services for all students at all levels of study from pre-entry to post-doctorate. The design of the Student Skills Centre provides opportunities for student involvement, engagement, collaboration and participation. Flexible furniture, with the introduction of multiple writing surfaces allows the physical space to support an active learning approach.
