  • Experimental Cubicles
    Experimental Cubicles
    These are small, quiet and private rooms for conducting PC-based experiments with a single participant. Each cubicle has seating for 2 people and a high spec PC with all of the core Psychology software. The cubicles could also be used to 1-to-1 interviews.
  • Flexilabs
    These larger, flexible rooms have a meeting-style table with seating for up to 5 people. There is also a large wall-mounted monitor to which you can connect both Windows and Apple devices either wirelessly or via a cable. The table can be folded down and pushed to the wall and the chairs stacked away to create more space for a range of activities.
  • Students in workshops

  • Social & Developmental Lab
    Social & Developmental Lab
    This observation lab has a video and audio recording system with four cameras and two ceiling microphones in the main lab that record to a server PC in the separate observation room. Activity in the lab can also be discreetly observed via the one-way mirror.
  • Auditory Lab
    Auditory Lab
    The Auditory Lab houses a 1.9m x 1.9m soundproof booth, offering acoustic isolation for auditory research.
  • Virtual Reality (VR) Lab
    Virtual Reality (VR) Lab
    VR is a growing area of research in psychology. We have two HTC Vive VR systems, one of which has Tobii eye tracking technology built into the headset. We also have two Samsung Gear VRs, a portable, smartphone-based VR system which is ideal for field-based research.

  • Traffic and Transport Lab
    Traffic and Transport Lab
    An immersive driving simulator with a 7-metre, 180-degree curved screen allows researchers to simulate various driving scenarios. This can be used, for example, to assess the detection of, and response to, hazards on the road.
  • Qualitative Research Lab
    Qualitative Research Lab
    Our qualitative research lab has large meeting table with seating for 10 people and a wall-mounted screen with wireless connection for both Windows and Apple devices. This room is ideal for focus groups and round-table discussions.

Make the most of our purpose-built psychology suites, dedicated to areas of behavioural study that include:

  • human communication and social interaction
  • computer gaming, and cyberpsychology
  • eye-tracking
  • cognitive modelling, and visual analysis
  • psychophysiology

Use our state-of-the-art IT suite, for computer modelling and data analysis. You’ll also have access to a technical workshop, cubicles for group and individual study, and banks of psychometric tests.

Build your practical skills, with industry standard tools and technology – use EEG and eye-tracking equipment to measure brain responses, or measure human movement outputs using real-time, 3D motion capture technology. At NTU, we give you the freedom to explore your subject, so that you can deliver research that matters.
