Research students have access to Drama’s spaces to hold seminars, symposia, conferences, and reading groups, and to Faculty-wide research student facilities, including a dedicated study, social, and seminar building (Lock-Keeper’s Cottage), two dedicated postgraduate workrooms in the ArtsTwo building, and the Research Reading Room in Queen Mary's Mile End Library.
A number of performance spaces are also available for our research students to book outside the times that they are used for teaching and assessment purposes. These spaces include the Pinter Studio, Rehearsal Rooms 1, 2, and 3, and the dedicated postgraduate Film and Drama Studio in ArtsTwo.
