"The campus library is one of my favourite places to go to study. But other than the library, there's the Student Life building and there's a cafe in there that is worth trying. Their food is amazing, but to be honest, any kind of student, any kind of learner they are, whether they need a quiet space or whether they need a sort of a white noise background, they can find any kind of study space that's suited to them anywhere on campus."
