Flexible spaces for teaching and connecting
- Engage your students by changing the scenery
- Flexible furniture to design the space around your activities
- Flexible technology to augment, modify, and redefine teaching & learning

We currently only have one flexible space you can book — the Teaching Grid. A second flexible space to support and encourage co-creation is opening in 2021/22.
The University has removed the requirement to socially distance for Term 2 and Easter Vacation, subject to review. Therefore we will no longer have a default room layout and you should let us know in your request what furniture and layout you need.
|Example Layout||Room Capacity|
|Seated in rows||68|
You are encouraged to keep windows open for airflow, where it is possible, safe and secure. This applies even in cold weather.
Planning your event
- Please note your Covid-19 mitigations in your risk assessment — you can use the University’s overarching risk assessment. These do not need to be shared with the Library, but please contact 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 greater 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
