University of Cumbria
The University of Cumbria was formed in 2007, from an amalgamation of St Martin’s College, Cumbria Institute of the Arts, and the Cumbrian campuses of the University of Central Lancashire. The University has campuses in Carlisle, Newton Rigg, Penrith, Ambleside and Lancaster and a specialist teacher-education centre in London. The University also has strong links and close partnership working with FE Colleges in to enable HE delivery locally across the county.
The Learning Gateway West at Energus acts as an information point for the University in the west of the county. We are able to give further guidance on a wide range of other services including, course information, disability and specific learning difficulties support, careers, counselling, money advice as well as academic skills, library issues and help with accessing IT facilities, journals and online catalogues.
This learning space is ideal for students to work individually or for those undertaking group work, as well as for meetings and tutorials. Within this space are fixed laptops connected to the University of Cumbria network allowing students to study outside of core facilitated hours, with further laptops available for loan.
We also have access to Energus facilities, such as the car park and the catering service, along with a limited access to the 204 seat auditorium and the engineering labs.
