Heading into week 5 and still don’t feel like you are making the most of the campus?

Whether you’re seeking a quiet corner for focused study, a relaxing spot to unwind between classes, we have created your new go-to guide to make the most of Curtin’s spaces and facilities:   

Spaces to Study 

Computer Labs: Curtin Bentley Campus has three major computer labs known as Abacus labs in Buildings 408, 303, and 501, open seven days a week. You can also find computer labs available at the Curtin Kalgoorlie Campus nestled within the library, that offer extended opening hours during exam periods.   

Library Study Spaces: Needing an area to practice a group presentation? Or an uninterrupted study space for you and your teammates?  Book a room at the TL Robertson Library here. Don’t feel the pressure of finding a space in the library again! 

Outdoor Study Spots: If you prefer studying outside whilst it is still sunny and warm, bask in the sunshine whilst doing your readings.  There are a variety of outdoor desks and chairs located at the north end of campus, near IGA and Curtin Central Bus station; a perfect place to study in the sun or shade whilst waiting for your bus.   

Building 418: If you need natural light to stay focused, and cannot operate without a window view, Building 418 on the North end of Bentley campus is the place for you. There are a variety of study nooks, collaboration hubs, and a makerspace (Plus, it is right near Exchange Hub for that much-needed sweet treat break).  


Spaces To Relax 

The Creative Quarter The Creative Quarter is a great place to cosy into a bean bag and rest between classes. Every fortnight, enjoy the event Barefoot Lunch event with food trucks, live music, games and entertainment.  There are also food trucks stationed at the Creative Quarter and the Hex, serving up options every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. The trucks aren’t always the same, so be sure to check the Explore Curtin Page for the weekly updates on which trucks, cuisines and options will visit campus.   

The Hammock Hotels: Swing into relaxation mode at Hammock Hotels situated on the south sides of TL Robertson Library.  

Tranquil Gardens: The East side of campus, often the forgotten side of campus has the sculpture garden and the spiritual garden, the perfect locations to switch off and find solace in your lunchtime break.

It is open to everyone, free and showcases hosts ever-changing exhibitions from local, international and Indigenous artists.
