Your room is equipped with a great study desk and comfy chair which makes studying convenient and practical. Another option is the exceptional Allan & Maria Myers Academic Centre (nicknamed the “Accy”) – also a perfect place to study. And because it’s shared between St Mary’s and Newman College students, you’ll be able to study with fellow students from across both Colleges. The Allan & Maria Myers Academic Centre is the learning hub of the College – expertly managed by one full-time and two part-time librarians and an IT support technician. Open 24 hours every day, it provides access to:

  • Extensive library collection
  • Research assistance
  • Wireless internet
  • Numerous study spaces for both individual and group work
  • Information technology room, containing 9 PCs, a colour printer/photocopier/scanner and a document-binder
  • 10 Tutorial rooms, all with data projectors
  • 4 Music practice rooms – 3 with pianos
  • Student Lounge
  • 2 kitchens with tea and coffee-making facilities

Our library owns copies of many of the textbooks you’ll need for your university studies, which will save you money at the University Bookshop. The collection is constantly updated based on requirements, so you’re sure to find what you need. Students are encouraged to borrow a textbook for the whole semester, and share it with two or three College buddies. And what’s more, there are no library fines, because trust and honesty is expected here.

The library also caters for your recreational needs, which means free and easy access to a broad range of magazines, newspapers, popular fiction and DVDs.
