Temporary closure of the Student Centre

Story added 26th Jul 2016


We're improving your Student Centre this summer...

So we can make some changes that students have asked for, the Student Centre and Library will be closed for maintenance for a short two week period. The Student Centre will be closed on Saturday 23 July and will re-open to students on Monday 8 August.

Private advice spaces for meeting with students

We asked students what we could do to improve the services that we offer in the college. Students told us that they would like more private space to speak with advisers about which courses to choose and what financial support is available. As a result of this feedback we are creating two purpose built rooms where students can meet with advisers in the Student Centre.  

Showcasing student work

We will also be upgrading our library catalogue and re-ordering all resources in the Student Centre and starting to showcase student artwork throughout the centre.

Alternative services

Students can still use our services while we carry out work in the Student Centre, in the following places:

• Information, advice and guidance will be available from the First Floor Student Lounge from 12-7pm in July and 12-5:30pm in August. An Adviser will be available to speak to you about financial support for your studies.

• Use of IT equipment / a place to study: our partnership with Holborn Library continues and Build students can use any of the nine London Borough of Camden Libraries, all you need to do is show your enrolment receipt on arrival.  Holborn Library is the closest library to Build and is located on 32-38 Theobalds Road, WC1X 8PA.

• Returning books: Return dates on stock that fall within the closed period still apply and you can return your books by using the drop bin outside the Student Centre on the mezzanine floor. You can also renew online or by phoning us on 020 7492 2666.

From 4 July until 19 August, the café will be open from 9:30am to 6:30pm with a summer menu serving coffees, teas, soft drinks, snacks and cakes. The café will be closed between 20 August and 19 September.

We look forward to seeing you in the Student Centre on Monday 8 August, and apologies for any inconvenience while we make further improvements to the Centre.
