Facilities & resources

DSPI is housed in Wellington Square and is sometimes known as Barnett House. It includes lecture and seminar rooms, facilities for students, a Common Room for use by all members of DSPI and staff offices. Your teaching will take place both within the department and in the Manor Road Social Sciences Building. 

At Barnett House, you can enjoy the comfortable and informal environment of the Common Room, where you can meet, network and socialise with staff and other students. You can also make the most of a wide range of social events that take place throughout the year, again offering a chance to network with your peers and with academic colleagues. 

If you are studying for a Master’s degree, you can make use of ample workspace, including computing and printing facilities. If you are studying for a DPhil, you will have access to dedicated office space.
