Welcoming and supportive

We're part of the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences at Newcastle University.

You’ll find us in the newly refurbished Henry Daysh Building (pictured) in the heart of the University's city campus. Here colleagues and students have access to an array of facilities including state of the art lecture theatres, two computer clusters, learning lab spaces, multiple seminar rooms, and a range of social and study spaces, including a café area.

We're close to the Students' Union and near the University's Library and Great North Museum. The shops and restaurants in Newcastle city centre are only a few minutes away by foot.

Whatever your study or research interests, you'll be well placed and supported.
