The parenting room which is opposite the Northey Lecture Theatre, next to the sick bay is available to all Law staff and students who are parents of children under the age of two. This is a quiet and private space so parents can feed, breastfeed or express milk for their children. This space also contains a nappy changing station, nappy disposal unit, cot, small fridge, microwave and kitchen sink – along with a soft light for sleeping. The room is unlocked 24/7 Monday to Friday but can be locked from inside to ensure privacy (if required).

Work rooms

As a law student you can access special rooms where you can study quietly. There are even private rooms for Postgraduate and PhD students wishing to study alone or in project groups. 

If you are studying Law, particularly as a postgraduate or PhD student, you’ll find work rooms set up specifically for this purpose. These require a key and/or access card. You can book these rooms or just hope one is available when you need it.
