Learn more about the sensory spaces in the library (Sturt and Bedford)

Explore Flinders University’s sensory spaces for a serene study environment tailored to neurodivergent and all students seeking calm.

Flinders University takes pride in fostering an inclusive and supportive environment for all its students. A testament to this commitment is our innovative Sensory Spaces, located in the Central Library (level 1) and Sturt Library (level 3). These unique areas offer a tranquil retreat, equipped with low lighting and comfortable seating, designed to cater to the needs of neurodivergent students or anyone in search of a quiet space for sensory regulation.

In collaboration with the Flinders Neurodivergent Study Support and Advocacy club, these rooms are a haven for those who might feel overwhelmed by sensory stimuli or seek a peaceful spot for concentration. Our room etiquette ensures that the spaces remain conducive to their purpose. We encourage users to be considerate of others, maintain low noise levels, clean up after use, and report any issues to maintain the quality and comfort of these spaces.

At Flinders University, we understand the importance of a supportive learning environment. Our Sensory Spaces are just one of the many ways we aim to provide a balanced and inclusive campus experience. For more information on accessing these spaces, please visit the library website.

If you find yourself on campus, we invite you to visit and experience the tranquility and support these spaces offer. They are your quiet haven for relaxation and focus amidst the bustling campus life.
