The department's common room houses Pring's, a café which is open Monday-Friday 8.30am-3.30pm (times may vary during university vacations). Tea, coffee, pastries, and a variety of hot and cold sandwiches are available.

Stroll through the garden to get there from the library and take in a bit of fresh air too! 

A 5-minute walk away is the Kellogg College Hub, a public café serving hot and cold food and drinks throughout the year.

The library is close to the University Parks, great for a study break or a picnic during Trinity term, or to blow the cobwebs away with a brisk walk through the trees during Michaelmas or Hilary.

For purchasing refreshments beyond the Department we are a short walk from the Jericho area of Oxford, Little Clarendon Street, and North Parade, offering plenty of cafés, pubs and shops. Great for a lunch break, catching up with friends, or for well-earned relaxation or celebration.

The nearest free to use cash machine is in the Co-op on Walton Street.

Smoking is not allowed in the department buildings, but there is a smoking area at the bottom of the steps at the front of the department.
