Facilities and resources
Mithras House has a series of ‘labs’, which are used for teaching and student and staff research work.
This lab is used for psychological research using equipment including eye-tracking and virtual reality research devices, as well as an electroencephalography headset and Electrodermal Activity equipment.
A specialist workspace with computing equipment for statistical analysis and projects involving video and audio editing software. The lab contains eight soundproof booths for recording or transcribing interviews undertaken as part of dissertation research.
A comfortable space with lounge furniture intended for qualitative research with larger groups. Due to its relaxed layout and naturalistic environment, the space is suited to research using focus groups, research using observation-based methods and child research.
A space designed for collaborative student learning. It is used by students and staff involved in the university’s global challenges programme, our collective mission to contribute towards solutions to tackling the pressing issues facing our world.
A space housing our extensive collection of historic dress and textiles, which are used in some teaching on our History of Art and Design courses. It has the space and equipment to work on textile projects. Displays created by students on these programmes are on view in the social spaces of the building.
The University of Brighton Design Archives is based at our Grand Parade building on our City Campus. It is an internationally significant research base with a curatorial team that initiates and promotes collaborative activity through a programme of projects. It focuses on British design and global design organisations in the twentieth century, welcoming scholars and students from many academic disciplines researching the designed environment, the design profession and design practice.
Our social work degrees are run in partnership with local agencies including:
- Brighton & Hove City Council
- East Sussex County Council
