Eligible graduate students can apply for a private office-style room in the 1888 building. They are in high demand, and terms and conditions apply.


Tenured Study Spaces (TSSs) are private office-style rooms assigned to late-stage research students on a 6–12 month basis. Each space has a desk, computer (PC or Mac), phone, lockable cupboards and bookshelves.

  • How much does a TSS cost?
    Nothing. They're free for eligible graduate students.
  • How are TSSs allocated?
    Priority is given to students who are in the final stages of their course. This means within six months of completion for master's or diploma students, or within twelve months of completion for PhD students. Demand for Tenured Study Spaces is high, so they are allocated according to a policy. 
  • When do applications open?
    Applications are considered by a Committee that meets each month, but you can make an application whenever you want. Specific dates can be found in the application form.
  • How do I apply?
