Student space: researching informal environments

Building on our rich repertoire of research in student spaces, ZZA has evaluated a new Student Union building at University of the West of England’s large Frenchay campus (29,000 students). Like ZZA’s Post Occupancy Evaluations of other informal student environments, this covers the the building’s mosaic of functions + spaces, how they’re used + what they’re like to operate. The expanding repertoire of these studies enriches our insight and the scope to compare across case-studies. Learning from our Post Occupancy Evaluations of two other informal student environments – the LSE’s Saw Swee Hock Student Centre and of LSE LIFE – were presented in May at The Design & Management of Learning Environments Conference.
