Teaching Grid space availability

Flexible spaces

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
  • Rooms that allow Open-space Learning
  • Facilitate group work, performance, or student-led teaching & learning
  • Engage students’ bodies and minds
  • Book for teaching, or teaching community events

We currently have two flexible spaces you can book — the Experimental Teaching Space and the Collaboration Area. Not sure which space is suitable for you? Get in touch.


The Experimental Teaching Space Is equipped with 7 projectors — 6 of which have Solstice Pods — and the Collaboration Area has one projector which is equipped with a Solstice Pod. Both spaces also have access to our collection of technologies.

Individual training is available on Teaching Grid technologies to help you make best use of them.

Please note: Teaching Grid staff do not accept responsibility for removing or transferring any data from our devices. Our devices are routinely formatted to remove any saved files.
