Discover and share good practice for smarter working universities

The UK Higher Education Learning Space Toolkit: a SCHOMS, AUDE and UCISA collaboration

It is intended to serve both as a practical guide and as a source of inspiration in the design of spaces that delight and motivate students, as well as meet their functional needs.
