A Place to Meet, Relax, and Network

Brookfield is the postgraduate hub. As well as a teaching venue, it is a distinctive social and meeting space for postgraduates from across the University - something the University has never had before. So whether you are taught at Brookfield or not, spending time there will give you a unique opportunity to meet postgraduate colleagues from a wide range of academic backgrounds and to immerse yourself into the vibrant and diverse postgraduate community we have here at Leicester.

There is also a café, run by the Students’ Union, selling Starbucks hot drinks, sandwiches, hot food, soup, drinks and snacks.
