Curzon Library

Curzon Library is our biggest library, with two floors of books, journals and AV resources. As an English student, the library is situated in the same building in which you'll be taught, so you'll be able to access all the resources you need easily.

Drama studios

Our dedicated Drama studio is used extensively by students taking drama related modules. It features a separate technical room for students to control the light, sound and ambience. Some of our previous students have performed in groups to transfer original Greek myth transcripts into performance pieces and have also looked at Medieval and Renaissance plays’ staging, costume, cultural influences and linguistic techniques.
