First identify what you will need the space for. Is it a regular catch up with a colleague or a brainstorming session with some team members working remotely? Once you know the purpose, you can choose which of our spaces best fulfil your needs. Below you can see what each of our spaces looks like and how they can be used.

Booths

Best for ad hoc chats or work and semi-private discussions

*Tip* Booths are great way to catch up with a team member or for quiet discussions in a small group. It is important to remember that as they are not completely closed off, strictly confidential discussion should be saved for meeting rooms.

Pods

Best for ad hoc chats or work, semi-private discussions, and independent work

*Tip* Pods are useful for semi-private discussions with a team member in person or virtually.They are great for unplanned calls or confidential conversations, when you just need some privacy.

Quiet Spaces

Best for auditing and quiet independent work

*Tip* If you’re working towards an impending deadline or otherwise need to get some much-needed work done, find a quiet space and concentrate without any distractions.

 

If you are coming onto campus to work throughout the day you will need to book a desk unless you have a designated workstation due to special requirements.
