We need your help to design the Diamond

The DiamondThe IC is expanding to the Diamond, the university’s biggest ever investment. We are creating almost another thousand study spaces for students of all departments and faculties and we need your help to design them.

We're currently looking for your feedback on a number of items of furniture which we're thinking of using in these new study spaces.

There a plenty of ways for you to tell us your opinion. First and foremost, you can see the furniture for yourself by coming along to Level 4 of the IC. There will be the opportunity for you to try out all the furniture, to compare the different options and to tell us any other thoughts you have on usability and design. Alternatively, you can take our online questionnaire.

If you would like to share your opinions with us in more detail or if you have any questions that you'd like answered, you can take part in one of our two feedback focus groups. The focus groups will be held at 1pm on Tuesday 4th of November and 1pm on Wednesday 5th of November on Level 4 of the IC. We’ll give you a free lunch and some IC Cafe vouchers as a small thank you for your participation.

If you'd like to take part in a focus group, or if you have any other comments or questions, please email Evelyn eg4el@sheffield.ac.uk (if you're applying to be part of a focus group, please be sure to include your name, subject and preferred time slot).

We hope you enjoy being part of designing our new £81 million state-of-the-art facility!
