The Engine Room cafe is based in the Harrison hub - open 8am – 3pm.

Welcome to the Harrison hub

The Harrison hub features brand new study space, which is bookable for research groups and events, a self-service area with a microwave and hot/coldwater, and our new café – The Engine Room.

The hub also includes a 1:1 space and a meeting room which you can book through the room bookings website.

These facilities sit alongside the Harrison information point – Info at Harrison, which is open from 8.15am-5pm. This is the place to go for any questions you may have about your life as an Exeter student, as well as specific course or timetable queries. Info at Harrison will give you the support you need quickly and efficiently.

You can also access two important services here; careers and wellbeing. This includes drop in careers advice from 11am-2pm, and wellbeing workshops. Ask for details at the information point.

We hope the new space creates a real sense of community for us with the Harrison Hub at the heart of the building. This really is a flexible space, which can also be used for study groups, seminars or events. If there any research groups that would like to book the space, you can email Jenny Crotty in the Education Services team who will be able to help.
