Our Teaching Facilities

The main teaching facilities within the Queen Mother Building are:

Queen Mother Lecture Theatre (ground floor)

Our main lecture theatre seats 65 in fixed row seating (and wheelchair spaces), and is equipped with dual data projectors and an audio system; laptops can be plugged directly into the system from the lecturer's console. Two whiteboards double as the projection screens. This room is used mainly for Level 2 and 3 teaching.

Queen Mother Seminar Room (ground floor)

The 25-seat seminar room has conventional tables and chairs in rows, but these can be moved into other configurations if required. The room is equipped with a data projector and an audio system; laptops can be plugged directly into the system from the lecturer's console. The whiteboard doubles as the projection screens. This room is used mainly for Honours and MSc teaching.

Lab 0 (ground floor)

Although Lab 0 often looks bare with only empty desks, it is the creative centre for most of the undergraduates. As well as offering space for students to use their own laptops, secure drawer space contains a variety of specialised kit to allow students to get to grips with unusual apparatus, such as Wii prgramming and writing iPhone apps. A video-editing console is also located in the lab.

Lab 1 and Lab 2 (ground floor)

These identical labs are the main undergraduate computing labs. Each lab contains six desks of four PCs with flat panel monitors, plus another desk with space for four students using their own laptops. The PCs are generally upgraded every three years.

Lab 4 (1st floor)

This lab of around 20 PCs is for the exclusive use of Honours students, so during termtime is busy with students working on coursework and their Honours project work.

Lab 5 (1st floor)

This lab of around 18 PCs is for the exclusive use of MSc students.

Breakout spaces

There are numerous locations (particularly on the ground floor) with comfortable seating to which students can move for group work or to take a break from the main labs.
