The MIE Respite Room

The MIE Respite Space is a calm bookable space on the ground floor of the St. Mary's building.

MIE respite space is located in room M8(a) on the ground floor of our St Mary’s building. This space is available to all MIE students and staff to book for a 30 minute time slot (max. one hour) on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday throughout the academic year.

The respite space is a quiet rest area in MIE where students and staff can take time out during the day to rest and recuperate. This space could also be used to manage sensory systems over the course of the college day. The MIE Respite space is an individual space and can be booked online for a minimum period of 30 minutes or maximum of one hour per day. The respite room is managed by the MIE Access Officer.  Preference will be given to students who are registered with a student support service who have been specifically referred for respite.  

Should you require any further information, please contact Simon Yeates, Access Officer MIE on [email protected] or by calling 01 - 8057752.
