PhD Thesis Writing-up space – Deadline extended

Are you currently writing-up your doctoral thesis full-time and in need of a dedicated desk space?

If so, you may be eligible to apply for a desk in the ‘Doctoral Thesis Writing-Up’ room in the Maughan Library.

Students whose application is successful receive their own desk and locker within a designated quiet room for a period of 3 months.

To be eligible, you must be a registered doctoral student at King’s College London who has either:

  • registered for writing-up status
  •  submitted an RD1 examination entry form to the research degrees examinations office which has been approved (you must provide proof of approval)
  • or is currently undergoing corrections for thesis re-submission following examination (you must provide an examination report as proof)

The expectation is that you will be continuously writing-up your doctoral thesis and will use the space at least 3-4 days a week.

To apply you will need to complete an online application form and request a supporting statement from your supervisor. Desks are limited and allocation is decided on the basis of each student’s need for a space as demonstrated by their application.

The deadline for this round of applications has been extended to the 31st of July.

A new Thesis Writing-up Space in King’s St Thomas’ Campus is due to be opened in September. The call for applications for this space will be announced in the coming months.
