Who we are

The Faculty of Classics is part of the School of Arts and Humanities in the University of Cambridge. At present the Faculty includes approximately 32 Teaching Officers (Professors, Readers, University Lecturers, and Language Teaching Officers) whose primary teaching responsibilities are university lectures and classes and graduate supervision. Most hold College Fellowships.

In addition, there are College Fellows in Classics. Their primary teaching responsibility is undergraduate college teaching although many also give university lectures and supervise graduate students.

There are also more than 20 people employed as Research Fellows, Directors of Research and post-doctoral researchers on projects associated with the Faculty.

There are approximately 80 graduate students and 230 undergraduate students in the Faculty.

 

Building and Access

The Faculty is housed in a purpose-built building, which is open Monday to Friday from 8.30 am – 7.00 pm in term time and 8.30 am – 5.00 pm out of term. The Enquiries Office is usually open from 8.30 am – 5.00 pm Monday to Thursday and until 4.00 pm on Fridays. In addition to administrative offices, lecture and seminar rooms, and a number of offices for University Teaching Officers, the building contains the faculty library, the Museum of Classical Archaeology, and Common Rooms. The Undergraduate Common Room, housing hot and cold drinks and snack machines, is in 1.10 on the first floor.
