The Emily Wilding Davison Building

The Emily Wilding Davison Building first opened its doors on 13 September just before the start of the 2017/2018 academic year. The striking building encompasses a state-of-the-art Library, Student Services Centre and Careers & Employability service. It gives students, staff and visitors access to opportunities, resources and facilities to help them achieve success. 

The Library which is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, has an extensive collection of over 400,000 books and a wide variety of spaces for people to use from collaborative areas to individual study pods and group study rooms. Students benefit from a new Student Services Centre at the heart of the campus and the Careers & Employability service that provides students with tailored support to help boost employability.
