The College works hard to maintain surroundings in which the residents can study quietly and effectively all year around. The library, seminars and tutorial rooms are always available.
The college library is a hub of academic work, due to its quiet location next to the UNSW Village Green.
The library stocks textbooks, non-fictional works, fiction and a range of journals and magazines. It is designed to accommodate a capacity of 20 students, with individual study desks and internet access.
The library is air-conditioned and offers ample storage space. It is a popular destination for private study for residents and friends.
In 2008, a purpose-built seminar room was opened next to the library. This has light furniture that can be arranged for purposes of a class, meeting or seminar.
The Seminar room is air-conditioned, has a plasma screen for projection and opens up to a large open area that can be used for break-out meetings.
Tutorial and studio rooms
There are several other rooms on the first floor of the college for small tutorials or personal study. On three floors of the residential tower, there are studio rooms with large benches, ideal for students undertaking projects in Engineering, Architecture or Construction Management.
Engineers Room / Workshop
In 2008, a small group of students took the initiative to set up a work room for Engineering students. Here, students can work on projects using power drills, grinders and saws. The room is securely locked and certified for Australian OH&S standards.
A common computer room is located on the first floor. The room offers computers, internet access, ports for laptops and a state-of-the-art colour laser printer.
