Research shows that being in green spaces can reduce anxiety, improve the immune system, and that regular contact with nature promotes better mental health.

So if you're planning on studying with us over the Spring Vacation why not take your breaks in the Royal Fort Gardens? From the Arts and Social Sciences Library it is only a 3 minute walk and from Wills Memorial it is 5 minutes!
