The Department of History is located near the West entrance of University Park Campus in Lenton Grove, an attractive 18th-century building. It is close to the Sports Centre and only a few minutes' walk from the Hallward Library, and from the coffee bars, cafes and shops in the Portland Building. This is where you will find our staff offices, staff common room, teaching rooms, and a computer suite.
The free University shuttle bus service stops just in front of our building and goes around the University Park campus and to Kings Meadow and Jubilee Park campuses. This service runs every 15 minutes during term time.
IT and study facilities
Research postgraduates have access to the dedicated research postgraduate study space in the Humanities Building, as well as the Digital Transformations Hub. There is also a microfiche/film reader and printer. All postgraduates can use the Department of History's 24-hour on-site student computer suite with printing and scanning facilities. The University provides all students with access to general IT facilities through a number of computer rooms spread across its campuses. The University's Graduate School also offers postgraduate students working space, and facilities for relaxing and socialising.
Research students in the Department of History may use staff photocopying facilities free of charge (for reasonable usage) and in addition receive an annual allowance for photocopying and printing off-premises. Inter-Library Loan vouchers up to a specified value per annum are also available to research students.
To encourage full integration of PhD students into the Department of History's academic and social community, postgraduate research students are also welcomed into the staff common room, where you can consult magazines, historical journals and reference books, find out about forthcoming conferences, seminars, fellowships and awards from the departmental display board, and use the kitchen facilities.
The Hallward Library is situated in the centre of the campus, just 10 minutes' walk from our Department.
The University of Nottingham Manuscripts and Special Collections are situated at Kings Meadow campus and have won recognition for their national and international importance.
Nottingham is an ideal centre for research, with excellent research facilities of its own, and an ideal central position which enables research postgraduates to access additional library and archival resources in London and elsewhere.
The Graduate School supports all postgraduates and early career researchers at the University, with dedicated study spaces, training courses and placement opportunities.
