Student study spaces: providing outdoor powered study space

Among the upgrades of 2011 was the installation of 500 new outdoor student work areas equipped with wireless network access and power supply for mobile devices. 

Since the project’s completion in late 2011, the outdoor study areas have become an increasingly popular addition to the campus and are widely used by staff and students alike.

Objectives
  • Provide alternative, powered study spaces for students outdoors
  • Enhance the student experience.
Key design features

 Each table provides two power points to charge laptops and other mobile devices, as well as wireless access where existing wireless networks are available.
