Our facilities are within Birkbeck College, University of London, in the Bloomsbury district of central London. Bloomsbury is the academic heart of London, long associated with education. Not only is Bloomsbury home to the British Museum and many of the Schools and Colleges of the University of London, but the first female higher education establishment in Britain, Bedford College, was founded in Bedford Square where Amity London is based. Amity House itself is a beautiful Georgian building at number 24 on this historic Square and serves as the point of contact for students and Amity, housing all administrative and student-support services.
All lectures and seminars are held at the University of London's Birkbeck College, on nearby Malet Street. Birkbeck's state-of-the-art facilities provide the ideal modern learning environment, offering classrooms and lecture theatres equipped with Wi-Fi internet access and the latest audio-visual teaching aids. And if you're in need of refreshment after your class you can always take a break in the on-site bar and café.
Students have full access to the computer labs and services at Birkbeck College, with PCs, printers and scanners for their use. These services are provided free to all students, with the exception that consumables such as printing are charged at a low cost.
All students are also given a free netbook computer which is ideal for educational purposes due to its portability and wireless internet connectivity, allowing students to take advantage of the Wi-Fi access at Bedford Square, Birkbeck College and the Senate House library.
Libraries are a key resource in studying for any degree and at Amity students are assured the best possible choice, with membership of three first-class facilities.
Birkbeck College Library
Birkbeck College has its own modern five-storey library, well maintained with computers and wireless internet access for personal devices. Usefully, by adding credit to an account, members can also make use of photocopying facilities and printers which are both wi-fi and e-mail compatible.
Senate House Library
Next door to Birkbeck College is the Senate House Library. With 3 million volumes over 15 floors, the library constitutes the largest part of the University of London's Research Library Services and is one of the most respected in Britain. As well as being a valuable research facility, the library is a well-appointed quiet environment where students can go to get on with their individual studies free from distraction.
UNIVERSITY OF NORTHAMPTON DIGITAL LIBRARY
Amity students enrolled on University of Northampton programmes have access to the university's library to supplement the resources provided by Amity. More importantly, as students in London, this includes the extensive digital library with off campus access to course relevant e-books,online business journals and past exam papers (respecting any license restrictions imposed by database owners). Through its Skills Hub the digital library also has a wealth of other resources such as referencing guidelines and academic and employability advice, which altogether serve to make it a most useful tool.
