Learning Centre

Across the campus you will find a variety of study centres, there are environments designed for group work as well as a number of Silent Zones so you can find a space that suits your preferred study style.

The Learning Centre is the central study hub on campus. Here you’ll find friendly, professional and knowledgeable staff ready to support your studies with research and resources. They can help produce bibliographies, citations and references, help with copyright and plagiarism queries and show you how to get the best from our resources. We have a range of equipment available to loan. Our current stock includes USBs, films, still and video cameras, sound and lighting equipment, extension leads and batteries. You can book a training session if you need support using the equipment.

The Learning Centre includes a Project Zone, a Quiet Zone and a Silent Zone. As well as an extensive library of books, Huish subscribes to a wide range of journals and online resources that you can access from anywhere with a WiFi connection. These resources are produced by subject specialists to support your individual course of study.
Illuminated by Huish’s wide resources for learning, I would definitely recommended it to anyone curious about their future college. The library has a wide array of books, the Teachers are supportive and always happy to help, and the tutorial sessions help me address things that I would usually put off.

WiFi is available across the campus and you’ll find a large number of computers in the Learning Centre and other study centres. You can also borrow laptops from our self-issue laptop lockers to use anywhere on site.

If you are doing a course that uses IT extensively you will find that there are extensive multi-media suites to support film making and Apple based music/media suites for Music and Music Technology. Our facilities are constantly being updated as technology advances.

The Helpdesk is located within the Beech Building in B5. Staff are available throughout the College day to support you in using the College IT facilities and you can also buy stationary here.
