Quiet Spaces at Hallam
Quiet Room, Multifaith Chaplaincy, Level 2 Owen Building.
Contains comfortable seating; 5 comfy chairs, space for one wheelchair, space dividing screens, and distraction/creative activities. Open access. If it looks like the room is in use there are likely to still be seats free.
Adsetts Library Respite Room 6439, Adsetts level 4.
As the room may be used for breastfeeding or helping staff or students who are ill or in distress, then it is private and the activity inside is obscured from outside view.
