PhD study rooms

Desk accommodation is available in the postgraduate student study rooms. Due to the limited number of spaces available, access to the desk accommodation is offered to PhD students only. Carrels with a lockable cupboard, network and power points for laptops, and a shared internal phone are available in the Arts Building and Social Sciences building. Spaces are distributed on a first-come-first-serve basis.
