Holocaust Memorial Day 27th January

A thought provoking topic which could be used in tutorials or to incorporate Equality & Diversity into a lesson.

Carol has created a fantastic cube in the LRC.



Our very own Carol will be supporting Christmas Jumper Day on the 16th December

LRC Printing Information

Every student is issued with 300 credits at the start of the academic year. Students very rarely go over their free credits but if you should need more you can purchase them at the LRC desk at £3 for 150 credits.

Remember that…

  •  You need your student card to release your printing.
  •  Colour printing costs 5 credits per sheet.
  •  Black & white costs 1 credit per sheet.
  •  You can also photocopy from the machines in the LRC.
  •  Always proof read. That spelling error could cost you credits!
