The Robinson Library Café
 

The Robinson Library Café is a great place to come and take a break from your studies.  Recently refurbished, you’ll find lots of comfortable seating where you can enjoy a range of sandwiches, hot and cold drinks and snacks. You'll also find hot and cold water taps, and vending machines for extra snacks! 

Take a wander through now and see if you can spot the tree table, the skyline of Newcastle and photographs of graduating alumni!

Eating and Drinking in the Library

Keeping hydrated and eating well is important when studying but to protect Library resources, computer equipment and furnishings, and to keep the Library a comfortable environment for everyone to work in, we do have some rules around what you can snack on in your study space.

As we continue on our tour, look out for helpful signs around the Library that tell you about the food and drink permitted in each study area.
