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 in the heart of the University's city campus. Here colleagues and students have access to:

  • three lecture theatres
  • two computer clusters
  • learning lab space
  • a range of seminar rooms

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.
