About Us

Self-study language learning at one of the foremost independent language learning centres in the UK.

Our history

The Language Resource Centre was established in 1997. It aimed to promote independent language learning for all on campus in line with the University's 'Languages for All' policy. In 2014 it underwent major refurbishment. The reading room in the Old Library Building was converted into a state-of-the-art study centre.

The LRC is a cross-faculty service, based in the HaSS faculty, providing support for all language learners.

The Centre is proud to be a member of the:
