Our location

The School of Social Sciences is predominantly based in the Chaucer and Taylor buildings in the centre of NTU's City Campus. You'll find a wide range of facilities designed to cater for your every need, from teaching and social spaces to open-access PCs.

Chaucer building

Our School reception gives you access to our friendly administrative staff. They can provide advice on a range of items relating to your day-to-day University experience, from submitting coursework to speaking with your subject administrator. The reception area is also a great space to meet up with tutors for informal discussions about your work.

As well as lecture theatres and seminar rooms, throughout the Chaucer building there are open-access PCs and study areas which provide a great space to work on essays or carry out online research. You can also grab a coffee in Chaucer Café, which serves a range of drinks and light snacks.
