With over 400 students and over 20 staff, the Department is a large place. However, we're very happy that the Department remains a friendly place, with lots of activities - both in academic (through research seminars and special events) and social terms.
When you need help, your first port of call for most general queries will be the Department office. We're open every weekday from 10.00 until 17.00, except on Wednesdays when we close at 13.00. Moira, Rob and Tessa (our hard-working office staff) will be able to help with most of your queries, and direct you to those who will be able to help with the rest.
You are also very welcome to knock on lecturer's office doors, particularly during their office hours, for academic discussion.
8C Common Room
The heart of the Department is our recently opened and furbished Common Room in 8C (Chesham Building). Open all day, every day, to students of the Department, this is a great place to meet with other students over a cup of tea or coffee.
The Common Room is also often the venue for our end-of term Socials, organised most ably by the Theology & Religious Studies Student Society.
