A massive hello and welcome to all our new students! And it is good to see some familiar faces returning from their summer break too.

The Library and Learning Services have had a fantastic first year in the brand-new Catalyst building and we are all excited to see it full of students studying away once more. If you haven’t had a chance to come in and explore the facilities, make sure you find some time to attend a Student Led Catalyst Tour during your jam-packed first few weeks. Our Student Advisors will be waiting with big smiles to welcome you!

To help you to navigate your new surroundings we have created a full line-up of activities for you to utilise including tours and peer support.

Student Led Catalyst Tours …

Catalyst tours will be available Monday – Friday from the 16th – 27th September. Drop in any day between 10am-3:30pm and meet us in the Catalyst Foyer.
