Social space

Back to the 'Useful information' page

The Faculty of Biological Sciences currently provides the following general space for comfort breaks for staff and post graduate students. The rooms have kitchen facilities including fridges and microwaves and a boiler for hot water.

Garstang buildingroom 7.41g
Astbury buildingroom 11.106a

Other kitchen facilities are available in some more restricted foyer and lobby areas:

Irene Manton building room 8.20
Irene Manton building room 9.21
Garstang building room 8.53h
Garstang building room 6.41g
Astbury building room 10.121
LIGHT building room 7.34

All these areas are self-service and staff and students are expected to keep all of the facilities in a clean and tidy condition ensuring that their unused food and drink is removed on a regular basis.

In addition there are a number of general serviced cafes provided by The University of Leeds for all staff and students at various locations around the campus. See the Great Food at Leeds website for more details.

The nearest two are:

  • Café Seven Worsley Building level 7
  • Waterside Café Roger Stevens Building level 6.

The Faculty is currently investing in a large centralised social space area in LC Miall level 7, which is due for completion in January 2014.  This will provide dedicated space for staff and post graduate students only, and will be a mixture of café style seating and tables and softer lounge style seating.
