Our Facilities

Bridgend
Campus

Our Additional Learning Support and Wellbeing Centre is situated within the ground floor of E Block. As well as providing a base for many of our Specialist Support staff, we have a dedicated quiet room complete with sensory objects, magazines, drawing materials, comfortable seating and the option of a low light environment. The quiet room is available to students who may experience high levels of anxiety in busy, noisy environments and may prefer to access this space at break times / lunchtimes or to manage any time of sensory overload/high anxiety.

Our Learning Lounge acts as a supervised and accessible study, group and social space for any student with an additional learning need, to complement other shared study/social spaces throughout the campuses. The Learning Lounge also contains the base room for assistive technology assessments and a quiet room with hearing induction loop for study support for students with hearing impairments.

Study Support rooms are available for one-to-one dyslexia support, support for higher education students, dyslexia screening, visual stress screening and assessments for examination access arrangements.
