Facilities

Psychology lecture theatre

The School of Psychology provides high quality facilities to all our students, researchers and staff. We are based on the University campus in the Ridley Building.

Undergraduates benefit from lecture and seminar rooms, as well as excellent practical facilities for carrying out experiments.

In addition, all members of Psychology can draw on a wide range of University resources. Newcastle University is fortunate in having exceptional computing facilities on campus managed by Information Systems and Services.

You can also access your desktop remotely (for example from home) using the Remote Access System (RAS). This means that you can see the same files and programmes just as if you were sitting at a university machine.

We also have excellent library facilities, and you should familiarise yourself with the Robinson library, where psychology books and journals are kept.

In addition, more and more psychology journal articles are available online through the electronic journals system. You should get used to using this as soon as possible. It is the quickest way of accessing articles to read. The library also provides electronic databases which you will use to search the literature for articles on a particular topic. We recommend the Web of Knowledge database.
