  • A special study room is located on the 4th Floor (Room L401a) for students with special needs. It is equipped with special personal computers, powerbraille, scanners, magnifying devices and speech synthesizer software. Please register with Centre STARS to use the room or facilities there. After registration, students can gain access to the room by simply presenting their student ID card to the smart card reader.
