Postgraduate Study and Social Spaces

There are a wide range of postgraduate study and social spaces available across campus to suit your needs. Some are open to all postgraduates where you can interact with students from across a range of disciplines. Others are division specific and allow you to engage with others from within your own field of study. Postgraduate only spaces allow students to study, engage in academic discussion as well as social interaction.
