Facilities for students
The University is continuously investing in state-of-the-art facilities to enable you to get the most out of your time here, and to help you contribute to world-leading research. Our focus is to engage students in conversation, and there is no better place to do this than the Postgraduate Research Lounge.
The PGR Lounge is a space dedicated for research students (undertaking a PhD programme). If you’re doing a PhD, this Lounge is a place you can call your own, where you can socialise, work, and help each other grow intellectually by having inter-disciplinary conversations.
The PGR lounge supports collaborative work, sharing of ideas, exploring other disciplines, socialising and engaging with extracurricular activities.
