PhD room & office facilities
We allocate each PhD student a workspace in either the PhD rooms or an office adjacent to faculty members from the relevant subject group. This workspace includes a desk, a PC, storage space and access to nearby printing facilities.
As a PhD student you'll be given your own PC, giving you access to the full suite of research software available at CJBS. VPN remote access allows you to connect to your PC from anywhere in the world, which is ideal for when you're away from Cambridge doing fieldwork. Additional software programmes may be installed upon request. If you encounter any IT-related issues, our large IT team will be there to provide first-class support.
The School's Information & Library Services provides a wealth of information resources, including a world-class range of databases covering company and financial data, industry and market reports, global news and much more. You will also have access to numerous e-journals and e-books as well as a rich collection of printed books and journals.
While many Information & Library Services resources are available electronically, you'll also find our main Information Centre on the ground floor of the CJBS building. Here, our excellent team of information professionals can help you with a wide range of matters, such as if you are undertaking multidisciplinary research and need help accessing resources elsewhere in the university or further afield. They also offer one-to-one training and research support at any time as well as scheduled group training on relevant tools such as NVivo, Zotero and Qualtrics software. If you're looking for help with social media as a research tool or how to manage your research data efficiently, the Information & Library Services team are the people to talk to - just set up an appointment or drop in to the Information Centre for a chat.
