As scientists, we're sometimes viewed as another species. I'm on a bit of a mission to break down that stereotype by showing that I'm a human being.
From sport to music, to much, much more...
Did you know that many University facilities are open to the public? You could catch a play or lunchtime concert, join a sports class, explore the seasons at the Botanic Garden or even use our conference facilities.
The Botanic Garden offers a wide range of activities for the public, from courses and tours, science picnics and public talks, to concerts, festivals and performances. Alternatively, you can just explore it at your own leisure.
Whether you are looking to improve your health, train for an event or just have fun, there are plenty of sporty choices on offer at the Centre for Sport, Exercise and Health.
The University has a number of conference facilities available for hire. With the latest audio-visual equipment available, on-site catering, and a wide variety of rooms, using our space and resources will make sure your event is a success.
Members of the public can use the libraries, but this access is limited and advance approval is required. There are, however, a number of specialist collections which are open to the public on an appointment basis, such as the Theatre Collection. The University also houses the Special Collections - unique archives which are open to the public by appointment.
The Department of Music holds regular lunchtime and evening concerts in the beautiful Victoria Rooms. The building is also the venue for a number of research seminars, lectures, exhibitions and conferences. To find out about hiring the Victoria Rooms for your event, see the Conference Office website.
Home to student and professional performances, Wickham Theatre is an exciting place to enjoy dramatic art. It is also used extensively for research projects in a range of forms and media.
