Your study space

The College of Arts and Law has a variety of comfortable places available for you to study and research in.

Study space in Westmere

Postgraduate researchers

Desk space is available for postgraduate researchers in the Westmere Postgraduate Research Hub. Here students can be allocated a desk with a computer as well as shelf space, and access to a kitchen, lockers and meeting rooms. A limited number of desks have been made available exclusively for use by students in the College of Arts and Law. 

The College also has a significant number of desks available to postgraduate research students in the European Research Institute (ERI). With similar facilities to Westmere, students become part of the academic community. 

Postgraduates working in the ERI building

Postgraduate taught students

The Arts Building and the European Research Institute (ERI) building provide hot-desking facilities for postgraduate taught students in the College of Arts and Law. These provide a quiet working place to use between lectures and seminars, with computer and printing facilities. These spaces are generally available for use from 9:00 to 18:00 every day of term. 

Elaine Mitchell, PhD History

“Moving into Westmere is probably one of the most significant steps I will have taken as a postgraduate researcher. It makes me feel a valued part of the University’s postgraduate community and is a collegial space with the opportunity to share experiences and to learn from fellow researchers.”
