New postgraduate research student space opens

Last updated on 7 February 2024

A new study space and meeting place for University of Leeds postgraduate research students has opened above the Refectory.

The new area, which will be staffed by teams from Leeds University Union, provides a mixture of quiet and communal spaces to suit students working independently and collaboratively and building communities.

The Estates team worked closely with Leeds University Union to make sure that the space met the needs of students.

Project Manager Alicia Graham said:

“This project has delivered on the brief that was set by Leeds University Union to create a space that was both welcoming and versatile for postgraduate students.

“Colleagues from Estates have had regular meetings with members of LUU to ensure that the space was suitable and appropriate for our postgraduate research students.”

It has been redecorated and reconfigured by the Estates team’s interior designers, providing a brighter and more versatile area for students.
