Facilities for Masters Students

Interlibrary Loan

Masters students can access inter-library loans. In some cases it may be possible to get free vouchers for inter-library loans. You should seek advice from your Programme Director to see if you are eligible. These free vouchers are charged to the unit.  We would, therefore, ask you only to request vouchers when absolutely necessary. They should never be used for materials that are already available in the University Library and should only involve books or articles absolutely vital for your dissertation.


The College does not provide photocopying facilities. We recently undertook a study into the possibility of providing such facilities at a lower cost, at the request of students. It proves impossible to provide photocopying at a lower cost than elsewhere on the University campus. In particular, the University Print Unit, in Northcote House, offer the cheapest photocopying that can be found anywhere in Exeter. Students may find that their subject units have a postgraduate allowance and competitive photocopying rates.

IT Provision

IT equipment and courses within the University are provided by Academic Services. For details of services and the wide range of IT courses on offer please consult the Academic Services IT website.

The College does not directly provide IT support for students. Amory Building has one open access computer room with 24 hour access, located just off the foyer in room 005. St Luke’s has one open access room with 24 hour access, located in Haighton Building. Please see the Academic Services website for a complete list of open-access computer rooms.


For details of services please consult the library website.

Collections relevant to College postgraduate students are held in the Main University Library, the Roborough Library, special collections, Law Library and Arab World Documentation Unit of the Institute of Arabic and Islamic Studies.  Education books are mainly held in the St Luke’s Library.

Senior Common Room

Postgraduates are welcome to use the Senior Common Room on the fourth floor of the Amory Building as well as the facilities inside the IAIS. The Common Room is open all day and provides newspapers, drinks and light snacks. It has a large balcony and scenic views. Please note that the inside of Amory is a non-smoking area.

Postgraduates are similarly welcome to use the Common Room of the Institute of Arab and Islamic Studies.

Education students have access to the Postgraduate Centre on St Luke’s campus in Staff House, access is via your student card which acts as a swipe entry card.
