School of Mathematics and Physics


The School of Maths and Physics is located around the main Lanyon site.

The School teaching rooms can usually be found in three main locations on the University's main site: 


The Maths and Physics Teaching Centre (MAP)

Most of the the teaching for the incoming academic year will take place in the Maths and Physics Teaching Centre (MAP), which sits in front of the McClay library.  There are 2 lecture theatres and a number of teaching rooms on the ground floor.    The Laboratories are also situated here, the first and second level labs are housed on the top floor of the building whilst the advanced Laboratories are on the first floor.  Many of our  Computer Based classes will be taught in the first floor Computing Suite, which caters for 80 students.


The Physics Building

The works ongoing in this building, are expected to finish in August 2017, Academic and support Staff will move into the building from mid August,  Technical staff are also located in this building.

This building houses the IRCEP International Research Centre for Experimental Physics and two lecture theatres, the Larmor on the ground floor, the Bell on the first floor.


Old Physics Building

Found on the South side of the quadrangle, the Old Physics Building houses most of the staff offices for Mathematics.  Applied Mathematics, Pure Mathematics and Theoretical Physics occupy the first floor;  Statistics and Operational Research occupy the ground floor;  Teaching Support occupies the lower ground floor.  The Teaching Support Office may be found through the door opposite the Maths and Physics Teaching Centre,  unless electronic submission has been arranged, module assignments and homework are to be handed into the Teaching Support Office.  This office is open 9am - 5pm  Monday - Friday,  during term time.

The Emeleus lecture theatre is adjoined to the Old Physics Building, it is best accessed via the archway leading from the quad.


David Bates Building (DBB)

The School staff will start to vacate this building from August 2017, they will move to the newly refurbished Physics Building. There will be no teaching in the David Bates Building from September 2017
