The opening of this space has been designed to encourage a wider social interaction for students of all cultures in a place that wouldn't compromise any religious or moral beliefs associated with alcohol. In particular there are around 200 -300 Islamic students on campus. There is a Coffee Bar and hot and cold snacks available - open from 10am

10pm throughout the week. Positive feedback has been received from many of the students so far.
