The ground floor of the Barnes Library within the Medical School building has been transformed into an innovative hub for all student services, with dedicated student welfare support services and confidential meeting rooms. In addition there are flexible study areas with WiFi access, space for informal and formal group working and the latest IT and audiovisual facilities.

Hot Desking
There are various MDS hot-desking facilities across campus for postgraduate taught students.
