Study spaces

The School of Mathematics has invested in dedicated spaces for our students to meet up and study, on top of all the facilities available University-wide.

MathsBase

The MathsBase is our dedicated study and help centre for first-year students and is located in Appleton Tower next to George Square. You can work here with other mathematics students, and tutors from the first-year mathematics courses are on hand throughout the day if you need help.

The MathsHub is an informal social and study space for Maths students in second-year and above and is located in the James Clerk Maxwell Building at our King's Buildings campus. As well as a small kitchen and several sofas, there are large tables for working in groups and an adjoining room for quiet study.

Computer Labs

All of our degrees involve some element of mathematical programming, and this is a particular focus in the Applied Mathematics and Mathematics & Statistics degrees. You will also learn to use the same software that professional mathematicians use to write up their work.
