Lab Facilities and Hire
CeDEx at Nottingham consists of two labs - one in the School of Economics on University Park Campus and one in the Nottingham University Business School (NUBS) on Jubilee Campus. Combined, we have 72 computer terminals for use by subjects (32 in Economics and 40 in NUBS) operating on Windows Systems and installed with standard software, ready to run experiments in Qualtrics, Lioness, different versions of zTree or any other software you are interested in. Besides these two labs we have 20 Windows tablets in order to move the lab where you need it. You can view photos of our labs.
Our volunteer subject database has over 3,000 registered subjects (university students) and this is evolving all the time, with fresh students every semester. They are recruited via ORSEE to take part in experiments and, for online experiments, we also have experience in recruiting and paying subjects through platforms such Amazon Mechanical Turk or Academic Prolific, which have massive subject pools.
Our labs are overseen by a Lab Manager who is also available to offer expert advice and assistance to those running (or thinking of running) experiments. This can include programming experiments, guidance on minimum subject payments and help with ethical approvals.
We are happy to hire our lab facilties to academic institutions and companies. If you would like further information, including an overview of our policies and outline of costs please complete our request form below, or email your enquiry to our Lab Manager. Please be sure to tell us whether you are an academic institution or company so we can send you the correct information. Once you have an idea of what sessions you would like to run, we can provide a detailed estimate of costs and check lab availablity for your experiment.
