The Reid Library refurbishment project has transformed the ground-floor of the library with a state-of-the-art design, where it has become open and light and makes the most of its beautiful and central location on campus. The number of student spaces for collaborative and informal learning has increased from 350 to 700. There has been improved access to wifi, power points and locker space, increased and upgraded bathrooms and the new Quobba Gnarning café. Other highlights of the refurbishment include:

  • A new entrance off Saw Promenade
  • A range of collaborative learning spaces to meet different learning styles
  • A learning suite for interactive tutorial style teaching for up to 60 students which can also be booked and used by students when not being used for teaching
  • Relocation of the resource room from the first-floor to the ground-floor of the library to improve accessibility
  • A dedicated space for WriteSmart (a daily help service for students delivered collaboratively by Student Services and the library)
  • Full refurbishment including new furniture, carpet and paint.
Take a look at the new furnishings on the refurbished ground floor of the Reid Library.
