Spacefinder now even better
Spacefinder update takes study spaces beyond libraries and across campus
With 65 study spaces on campus, it can be difficult to find the perfect spot to work. Spacefinder not only shows the locations of each study space on a map, it also provides descriptions and photos of each space to ensure you know where to go. Using feedback from students we have recently revamped the site, making it faster, more responsive and more accessible.
But even better than that, you can now set criteria for your search, allowing you to refine the type of space you want to work in, the atmosphere and noise levels, how you prefer to work, and on-site facilities.
These range from accessibility criteria such as wheelchair access, gender neutral toilets and adjustable furniture, to study needs like projectors, plug sockets and group spaces.
Spacefinder is the first step on a journey
Criteria such as historic, natural daylight and attractive views mean you can also discover enjoyable space for those long study sessions.
“I think Spacefinder is the first step on a journey,” said Peter Edwards, the application analyst in charge of the updates, “to develop a comprehensive way-finding application for students which will integrate things like room booking, computer availability, personal calendars and events.”
The improvements to Spacefinder are part of our continued commitment to customer service, accessibility and feedback, which recently saw the Libraries awarded with the prestigious Customer Service Excellence accreditation.
You can try out the new site now and leave feedback for any more features or improvements you would like to see.
