Your Bassline is what you want it to be. Somewhere you can plug in, not just to power but also straight into the University's wired internet. Somewhere to have a vigorous debate over the content of your group project, or just find a quiet corner to escape your hectic day for an hour or so. Somewhere to meet with your student club, or eat lunch in the comfort of a bean bag in air-conditioning.

Bassline is a social learning space custom-designed to give Macquarie students a place where the boisterous, social atmosphere of the Campus Hub runs head first into the quiet study nature of the Library. The result is an experimental middle ground - room for individual study to coexist with group work, alongside people who learn in many different ways and at many different decibels.
