Trinity now provides a variety of respite spaces. Some of these spaces can be booked individually while others are student spaces that can be used by students as places to rest. Trinity provides three respite spaces; one in Arts Building (managed by the Disability Service); one in the Sports Centre; and one in the Health Centre at Printing House Square. These spaces are available to students who have applied for reasonable accommodation with the Disability Service and require a respite space during the academic year.
Respite spaces are quiet rest areas in Trinity where students can take time out during the day to rest and recuperate. They benefit students who experience fatigue, pain, or discomfort as a result of their disability. They can also enable students to manage themselves and their sensory systems over the course of their college day.
There are a number of respite type spaces and quieter study spaces around the Trinity campus. For more information on these spaces please visit the Library's Sensory Spaces webpage.
