Teaching Grid

The Teaching Grid is a flexible space on Floor 2 of the Main Library that provides opportunities for experimentation and innovation in teaching methods.

Bookings are available to everyone who teaches at Warwick, including teaching staff, GTAs, and trainee teachers.

Cabaret 60
Seated in rows 68
No furniture 82

Ventilation

You are encouraged to keep windows open for airflow, where it is possible, safe and secure — even in cold weather.

Planning your event

If you are running a formal event in the spaces:

  • Please note your Covid-19 mitigations in your risk assessment — you can use the University’s overarching risk assessment. You do not need to share these with the Library, but please get in touch with us if you have any questions — teachinggrid at warwick dot ac dot uk
  • You should also think about the type of activity you’re organising, as lively activities will have more significant risks and need more consideration than events requiring attendees to remain seated
  • Warwick Food and Drink will deliver to events through the usual booking process
