Student Hub

The Abercrombie Student Hub, on the third floor of the inspiring Abercrombie extension, is a dynamic and flexible space for students in the Faculty of Technology, Design and Environment.

The Student Hub was built as part of the Abercrombie extension, which opened in autumn 2012. It offers an increased number of work stations for faculty students to use and forms a flexible space, which can be used informally by students as well as for presentations and lectures. In this way the Hub complements the break-out spaces that have been created throughout the Abercrombie building.


The Student Hub has various resources for student use including:

  • a large, open-plan, dynamic space with moveable partitions and seating
  • 24 high-end workstations
  • a large plasma screen with data and audio projection
  • lecture-style seating for up to 60
  • a hearing induction loop built into floor
