Investment of £12 million in Health and Life Sciences has developed our first-class teaching and learning facilities to help you develop your practical experience and theoretical knowledge beyond the classroom.

Most modules are delivered at the Leicestershire and Rutland Hospice (LOROS). During 2016 LOROS will be extending its facilities to include a bespoke development for the delivery of education and training and research activities. This will include the following:
- New library facilities and an IT suite
- Large seminar room/lecture theatre
- 3 high-spec seminar rooms/meeting rooms
- A clinical skills simulation area, with an observation room
- Large break out spaces
We have 1,500 study places and 650 computer workstations across four sites on campus. These give access to more than half a million publications, an extensive range of DVDs, e-resources and thousands of electronic journals.
During standard term-time (October to June) the main Kimberlin Library is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Outside of this period, and during university holidays, the library will remain open but with reduced opening hours.
Award-winning staff are on hand to help and there is a café for study breaks. We offer a range of workshops, drop-in and one-to-one sessions, and our Just Ask service provides email and telephone support.
Our comfortable and well-equipped study areas provide a range of environments to suit your needs.
Originally set up in our main Kimberlin Library, the learning zones proved so popular that more were created in the Eric Wood Building and Greenhouse. These flexible spaces are ideal whether you are working as a group, practising a presentation or working quietly on your own.
They feature workstations with power supplies for laptops, plus bookable syndicate rooms with interactive whiteboards and DVD players. Eduroam wi-fi is available across all campus locations.
