Information Services and the School of Physics and Astronomy

Information Services are a fully-integrated support service, offering physical and digital services across library, IT, learning technology, student study spaces and teaching room technologies.

The School of Physics and Astronomy was formed in 1993 by the merger of the Department of Physics (called the Department of Natural Philosophy until the late 1960s) and the Department of Astronomy. The School has about 260 members of staff, of whom around 80 are academic teaching staff.
