Studying in the Classics library

We are committed to making sure that the Faculty remains a vibrant intellectual centre with an appropriate physical environment, redeveloped to meet our changing needs.

As we look to expand our research programme and our graduate student population grows, the creation of a new Postgraduate Student Centre to replace the current tiny postgraduate common room, as a hub where everyone meets, shares ideas and socializes, will have a hugely positive effect on our students. Equipped with a vibrant, stimulating and inspiring Postgraduate Centre, future generations of students will draw in the whole postgraduate population to experience the benefits of in-person intellectual debate and exchange of ideas.

Remodelling the existing Faculty building will require us to find significant additional funding. We would be delighted to hear from any alumni who would like to get involved in this project as we develop our plans.

To find out more about how you can support this project, please contact Amanda Lightstone, CUDAR Senior Associate Director for the School of Arts and Humanities or contact James Warren, Chair of the Faculty Board of Classics.
