Regent Court - Lewin Computer Room

A group of students working with a NAO robot

The newly refurbished Lewin study space in Regent Court offers flexible teaching and study space for students and is also used for departmental seminars and events.

A laptop loan system is in place (which has replaced the old desktop machines) which allows much more flexible use of the space so that the main area can be configured for group work, lecture classes or social events.

The Lewin study space can be booked for meetings and events.
