The firstpoint team

firstpoint wall art

We hope you will find a moment to pop into firstpoint to view our new wall art, designed and created by Laura Paice, as a piece of work for her third year Graphic Design and Multimedia BA (Hons) course.

Students and staff have mentioned how much the design adds to the window nook area in firstpoint, making it feel a warm and welcoming place to meet, study and work.

The Student Support and Wellbeing Team regularly hold Fancy a Cuppa sessions in this area each week on a Tuesday and Thursday, 1.00 to 2.00pm.
