Art and design facilities
Contour Fashion studios include full-size pattern cutting tables, Lectra Modaris pattern generation system, Macpi Moulding machine, Hashima Heat Press, industrial steam irons, a visualiser, the latest computerised lockstitch sewing machines, specialist contour sewing machines and specialist intimate apparel mannequins.
You will be encouraged to work with a breadth of materials common to the intimate apparel industry e.g. stretch and rigid fabrics, while embracing experimentation in other materials and processes.
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.
The main Kimberlin Library is open 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year (other than in exceptional circumstances).
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.
