Skip to main content Skip to navigation


Current circumstances mean that most office hour appointments will be online (either via email or Microsoft Teams) but you may request a face to face appointment if you wish.


Office Hours

The atmosphere in the Department is friendly and informal and it is usually very easy to contact individual members of staff. All academic staff post their ‘office hours’ on their office doors and on their staff webpages, specifying regular times when they will be available for student enquiries. You can also set up appointments at other times by emailing them.



Students should note that the University & department will ONLY contact you via your University e-mail address. Please be sure to check your e-mails on a regular basis so that you do not miss any important communications. To update your address please do so via the student record online page. Sign in to this page as usual and select ‘Student Records’ from the ‘My Data’ link on the left hand menu.



Undergraduate students have pigeonholes which are located in the foyer outside room H305 and postgraduate students have pigeonholes located in the foyer outside room H342. Personal post should NOT be sent to the department but to your term time address. Items posted to the department will be returned to the sender. Academic members of staff have clear plastic pigeonholes located outside their offices, and part-time seminar tutors have folders located with student pigeon holes.


Social Media

You can also keep up to date with what is happening in the Department of History by following:

Microsoft Teams: History Student Community Space - You will find channels where you can raise any issues or concerns with your SSLC course reps, chat to other students in the department and on your course, hear of any new opportunities in the department, receive information on things happening in Careers, Wellbeing and much more!
