How To Find Us

Please note: the Department will not normally accept requests to circulate information, posters, or other material to its staff and students. Such material will for the most part simply be deleted silently on receipt. Apart from questions of the use of staff time, circulation by us would by itself suggest that the material in question had our endorsement, which we will frequently not be in a position to give. In short, please do not try to use us as a mailbox.
