Teaching Facilities

The accommodation in the main Department includes one large and one small lecture theatre, one very large teaching laboratory recently completed refurbished, which is used with other departments in teaching first and second year courses. There is an excellent library (300 m2) used by undergraduates and by research staff. The Department, including its teaching laboratories and library, are fully networked.

More details on the equipment available in each room can be seen on the Teaching Facilities page.


Research and Other Facilities

The remainder of the Department consists of research laboratories and offices. We have facilities for confocal microscopy, tissue culture, histology, biochemistry, molecular biology, electronics, computing and instrument making.

Our Mechanical Workshop facilities and services are available to hire to all departments of the University.
