Reading groups are regularly formed in response to the specific research interests and needs of both staff and postgraduate students
Reading group organizers are asked to book accessible rooms for their meetings. In the department, these are seminar rooms B23 and B09.
If you are holding your reading group outside the department, we would ask you to consider accessibility needs when choosing a location.
