The Sports Arena is located on the West Campus and is number 1 on the campus map:


Your specific room is displayed on your e:Vision timetable. If you have any problems accessing this please contact It is important that you attend the venue on your e:Vision timetable as attending the exam in a different venue (even if the same exam is taking place there) may result in you being marked absent. It is your responsibility to ensure you are aware of where your exam is taking place - missing your exam or being late due to not knowing your venue or going to the wrong place will not be considered a mitigating circumstance. 

Please note that we cannot provide secure storage for any belongings that you take along to your examinations.  Therefore any items left outside a venue are left at your own risk.  Please make use of the lockers available around campus to store your valuables.
