Clifton Library 

Why not use your time at College to upskill yourself, or simply kick back and enjoy a bit of fiction?

In the Clifton Library, not only will you have access to hundreds of books and journals to aid your studies, but you will also be able to borrow CDs, DVDs, and a selection of video games. 

Other areas to check out

If we’ve not already given you enough to do on campus, you must visit the University Centre Rotherham’s (UCR) outdoor amphitheatre in the summer months.

UCR is just a 2-minute walk away, located on Doncaster Gate. The amphitheatre is perfect for relaxing in the sun, getting a bit of fresh air and relaxing with friends. 

If the sun isn’t shining, you’ll have to check out our Starbucks counter in the Wentworth building for a tasty, smooth coffee and head upstairs to our indoor table-tennis table, where you can challenge friends, (and sometimes even staff) to a lighthearted game of ping-pong.

Be sure to check out all the above for the complete Rotherham College experience. We can’t wait to see you in September!
