  • a lecture theatre seating up to 80 students, with multiple screens and a brand-new sound system so you don't miss a thing
  • comfortable social spaces throughout the building to relax and study with friends
  • a Learning Resource Centre to check out books, use computers and receive training
  • an international INTO Café on the first floor of the Centre with an optional meal plan

Does INTO UEA have a library?

The Learning Resource Centre (also known as the LRC) is where you’ll find academic books, CDs, DVDs, journals and newspapers. Here, you can check out books, borrow a laptop overnight, print out study notes, scan in learning materials, access the University’s online facilities and download lecture notes from INTO UEA’s virtual learning environment.

The LRC is open every day between 7:30am–11pm. If you can’t find what you’re looking for, there are friendly members of staff in the LRC to offer advice and training from 8:30am–12:30pm and 1:30pm–7pm Monday to Friday.

Where can I find food from my country?

The large INTO Café is on the first floor of the INTO Centre at the University of East Anglia. Serving a wide variety of international cuisines to ensure you have a taste of home, it's open 365 days a year and serves hot and healthy meals three times a day.

You'll find everything from Asian and European to British dishes, as well as vegetarian and halal servings to cater to all dietary requirements. If you choose a Meal Plan as part of your accommodation, you'll receive two meals in the INTO Café each day.

Where will my classes be on a science programme?

There are three modern science laboratories at INTO UEA for Newton students and students taking an International Foundation in Pharmacy, Health and Life Sciences or Physical Sciences and Engineering. The class sizes ensure that you'll get lots of individual attention and support from your teachers and the science technicians.

The labs are very well-equipped, giving you access to more supplies than you'd find in an average high school. The quality of the equipment you'll get to use and the course content you'll experience at INTO University of East Anglia are the perfect foundation for your future studies in a scientific field.

Who can I talk to if I have a problem?

In the courtyard, you’ll find the Courtyard Office. Here, Social and Welfare Officers are there to support you with any non-academic problems, such as:

  • help with renewing your visa
  • booking travel tickets
  • advice about making friends
  • general guidance about student life

Once you’ve finished studying, there’s a games console in the reception area that’s free for you to play with your friends. If gaming isn’t your thing, the Centre runs regular movie nights, craft nights and seasonal events (such as pumpkin carving at Halloween and dumpling making for Chinese New Year) to keep you entertained between studies.
