Berkeley Centre

The Berkeley Centre for the Humanities

The Berkeley Centre for the Humanities is a study facility in the basement of the Boole library, reserved for the use of Arts, Celtic Studies and Social Sciences postgraduate students.   It is named after George Berkeley (1685-1753), the philosopher and former Bishop of Cloyne.

This space offers a reading room with 16 oversize reader places, and a smaller room which can be used for collaborative work 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.
