Departmental Resources

This page outlines the facilities and resources available within the Department. These are a mixture of teaching and research resources.

Teaching Resources Research Resources 
Synthetic Environment Laboratory

The Mathematics library is housed on the fourth floor of the Physical Sciences Building, allowing easy access for students to browse texts and find a quiet place to work between lectures.

The SEL houses the virtual reality equipment to allow researchers to visualise their data in 3D.

Lecture Theatres
Supercomputing Facilities

A range of lecture theatres are also contained within the building, meaning that Mathematics and Physics students can find all the facilities and resources required for their studies located under one roof.

A 128 node, quad core supercomputer housed in the department allows researchers to run state-of-the-art simulations of e.g., atomic interactions, astrophysical phenomena, and foams.

Computer Rooms

The Honours Laboratory on the second floor of the Physical Sciences Building offers more than sixty computers during office hours. In addition, the recently upgraded wireless network in the building allows students to connect wherever they want to work.


The newly refurbished lobby provides a relaxation space for students between lectures. Vending machines provide drinks and snacks.
