There are three Learning and Teaching Hubs. Each will provide support for a range of courses offered by a group of schools. The hubs are staffed from 08:00 to 18:00, Monday to Friday.Read It
When the campus was first built it was designed so nowhere was more than 5 minutes walk from the Square in the centre of campus – we've grown a little since 1963 – but we're still a relatively compact campus. This means there’s a lot of buildings in a relatively small space, and it takes a while to find your bearings. Here’s our pro tips for successful navigation!
Some schools are buildings, but not all buildings are schools
Schools of study are organised into a Faculty structure. Each School is known by a three-letter acronym, such as BIO for the School of Biological Sciences.
The campus map provides a list of Schools, indicating in which building they are based. In some cases the name of the building is the same as the School of study – but not always. Which leads us to…
Embrace the acronym
UEA is an acronym, so why stop there? Buildings are often known (and especially written) by abbreviated forms, such as TPSC for Thomas Paine Study Centre. Rooms are usually named in the format: building acronym, floor number, room number. For example, if you had a meeting in room 12 on the first floor of the Thomas Paine Study Centre, that would be TPSC1.12.
The importance of zero - get the right floor
Generally, the main entrance to a UEA building is floor 0. Walk up the stairs and you’re on floor 1. Obvious? Here’s the bit that catches people out - the next floor down from floor 0 is called floor 01, and then down again to 02 and so on. It’s really easy to end up in ARTS 1.03 when you’re meant to be in ARTS 01.03. Respect the zero!
