Yesterday the University’s Vice-Chancellor Professor Caroline McMillen officially opened the Auchmuty Learning Lounge and remarked how things have changed since her Uni days and for the better.

An old, dull reading room in the Auchmuty Library has been transformed with a $1.6million refurbishment into a bright light-filled collaborative learning environment. Gone is the dark and dreary furniture and a large portion of the red brick and in its place is a vibrant space with a range of comfortable study options.

The Learning Lounge offers group study spaces, collaborative computer desks, WiFi and and a ‘survival station’ with hot water and microwaves.  Computer availability is limited so bring your own device (BYOD) is recommended for individual study. Laptops are also available for loan from the Auchmuty Information Commons. Access to the Learning Lounge after the Library is closed is via University ID swipe card.
