The Link

Situated between Summer Row and McIntyre House, The Link is the new home for many of the University's support services and staff departments.

Located at the end of Charlotte Street nearest to Summer Row, The Link is just a few minutes’ walk from all our city centre campuses, providing a brand new base for students and staff at the heart of the University. The building features a bright modern design with services spread across eight floors. Each department's floor includes a welcome area with a reception desk and seating, as well as open plan offices and meeting rooms.

From February 2020, The Link will also be the new location for the University Library and Academic Skills Centre (ASC). Spread over the top three floors, the facility will feature group study areas, workspace pods, PCs and ASC tutorial rooms, as well as a helpdesk, self-service kiosks and subject librarian office.

The following departments will be based within The Link: 

Location Department
Lower Ground Resource Centre and Assignment Tracking System (ATS)
Ground Floor Student Services, Wellbeing and Mentoring Team
First Floor Finance
Second Floor Marketing, Admissions and International Centre
Third Floor Academic Registry, Attendance Team and the Examinations Unit
Fourth Floor Library *
Fifth Floor Library and Study Areas
Sixth Floor Library, Academic Skills Centre and Quiet Study Areas

How can I access these services during the scheduled move?

Please note that there may be some disruption to services while departments are moving into The Link during December 2019. To access these services during this time, please contact the relevant department using the details listed on our Contact Us page

* Library, Academic Skills Centre and the Resource Centre

The Library will not be available between Monday 27th January and Tuesday 4th February. UCB has worked closely with the Guild of Students in choosing a move time that is least disruptive to students. For any students that need to use the computer facilities, these will be available in the Resource Centre (Summer Row) and the ThinkSpace facilities in Summer Row (sixth floor) and McIntyre House during this move. The Library will be open from Wednesday 5th February.

Academic Skills Centre will be operational from Monday 6th January.
