The PhD students have an office with desks, networked computers, shelves and filing cabinets, a printer and a phone. The location of the room provides easy access to their supervisors, school research tutors and other research office staff.
The social spaces in the faculty (e.g. coffee shops, refectory, the Sports Village) are also nearby. Timely IT and Technical Support is also available on campus when needed.
