COLLEGE LEARNING CENTRE

In early 2015, a new £3.5million College Learning Centre opened on campus. It provides a modern learning environment with first class facilities dedicated to our College students.

The two-storey building, which has a stunning glass frontage and atrium, provides a learning resource centre on the ground floor, including two IT rooms, book, magazine and journal resources and Wi-Fi throughout. The first floor features 15 classrooms and office space for teaching and support staff.

Access to a world of learning

The College Learning Centre is open seven days a week and it provides library services for all students at Hartpury with a wide range of books, e-books and journals, DVDs, quiet study space as well as PCs, printers and photocopiers for use. You can even print up to poster size and there are friendly, knowledgeable staff on hand to help with queries.

Hartpury students can also search for and reserve books and e-books using the library catalogue online or on the library app, access academic journals online using ‘Shibboleth’ and access ‘brain-fit activities’ on the College Learning Centre section on the student moodle site.

It’s all about the extras!

The latest Microsoft Office package is also available to all Hartpury College students at no cost, and can be downloaded to your own personal computer.

Your Hartpury account will also give you access to Box of Broadcasts (BoB) - a free service that is available to Hartpury students. It enables you to choose and record from any Freeview digital channel.  Archives include footage from all freeview channels, and includes coverage of sports tournaments, horse racing, films, etc.

You can search the archive, schedule something to record in the future, and even create clips to include in presentations or share with others.

College Learning Centre opening hours:

Monday to Thursday: 8.30am to 9pm Friday: 8.30am to 5pm Saturday and Sunday: 1pm to 5pm

IT support

IT services in the Student Zone can help students with any difficulties they encounter when using the college IT facilities, such as problems printing or connecting to the network.
