The Berkeley Centre for the Humanities
The Berkeley Centre for the Humanities is a new postgraduate resource for Arts, Celtic Studies and the Social Sciences within the main UCC Library building on Q-1. It is named after George Berkeley (1685-1753), the philosopher and former Bishop of Cloyne.
This space offers a reading room with a minimum of 12-16 oversize reader places, and a study room which can be used for collaborative work. The study room would also be subject to other students using the space on a 'first-come first-served basis'. The rooms provide a quiet work area with ample storage facilities and lockers. Wireless Internet Connection is available at the Centre. Please register your laptop with the Computer Centre.
Access to the Berkeley Centre
The Graduate School, in collaboration with the UCC Library, has re-designated part of the research area in the Berkeley Centre in order to accommodate the increasing number of successful Post-Doctoral Fellows in the College of Arts, Celtic Studies and Social Sciences. The inner room, formerly used as collaborative study space, will be re-designated the ‘CACSSS Post-doctoral Research Space’ as of Monday, 8 October and will accommodate assigned places for four researchers on a full-time basis. The remaining study spaces will continue to be available for use by research postgraduates and Master’s students in the College of Arts, Celtic Studies and Social Sciences, who can register to use the facilities with Ms Marie O’Donovan of the Graduate School by filling out the form and returning the application to Ms. Marie O’Donovan in G26, O’Rahilly Building, UCC.
