Facilities

The Cass Building. Designed for the business of learning

As a Masters student, you will be based at the Cass Building in Bunhill Row.

This is a high-tech, flexible and inspirational space that facilitates the flow of people and ideas.

It is equipped with state-of-the-art facilities such as our 200-seater auditorium that provides the central focus for student learning and major public lectures. Other lecture theatres, seminar rooms and syndicate rooms are used for participatory lectures and group interactions.

Our Bloomberg and Reuters dealing rooms provide dramatic, hands-on and practical experience of the dealing room environment, complementing the theoretical study of commodity and derivatives trading.

The Cyril Kleinwort Learning Resource Centre combines library and computing services. Its resources support all areas of business and management teaching, learning and research. Students have access to approximately 30,000 books, 3,000 journals and nearly 40 specialist databases.

As we are a School of City, University of London, all Cass Masters students are entitled to apply for a place with the University's accommodation service. Their facilities are just a short walk from our teaching facilities.

Learning Facilities

The Cyril Kleinwort Learning Resource Centre is at the heart of the new building. Situated on the first floor, it combines library and computing services as a unified resource. Seating provision is a mix of informal, traditional and laptop-enabled places.

It supports all areas of business and management teaching, learning and research with:

  • about 30,000 books (for varying periods of loan)
  • thousands of electronic journals and newspapers
  • online access to past Cass Masters' dissertations and exam papers

The library catalogue is fully networked, enabling you to check details at any time, to make reservations, or to renew existing loans. Renewals can also be made via a touch-phone facility. As you would expect from a modern business school library there is heavy investment in electronic information with subscriptions to nearly 50 specialist databases (most fully networked, others on dedicated computers).

Computer access is available throughout the library as well as in every lecture room. All students have access to the University Library on the nearby main City, University of London campus at Northampton Square, where there is a collection of undergraduate business texts as well as other useful material in economics and sociology. The City Library also has very adequate study accommodation following extension and refurbishment.

Further details of library services and collections can be found by following the link below and in the booklet 'A strategic guide to information', which is given to all incoming students.

Auditorium

This cutting-edge, 200-seat lecture theatre is equipped with the very latest audio and visual technology. It provides the central focus for both student learning and major public lectures and acts as an important forum for the City of London.

Real-time dealing rooms

Many Cass students leave for careers in City trading houses. Our exclusive Bloomberg and Reuters sponsored dealing rooms do much to prepare them.

They are as close to the real thing as you can get, and complement the theory taught at Cass with hands-on exposure to simulated dealing environments. You can also enrol in Bloomberg's Product Certification Programme, which will help you to fit straight into the working world.

Credit Lyonnais also supports this facility.

Information Technology

Computing rooms are available for student use and for teaching purposes at the Business School. Further rooms are available on the main University campus. The facilities provided are primarily personal computer-based, with some powerful UNIX workstations, reflecting the mix of information technology in the business community. In addition, Cass has a wireless network which all students have free access to as well.

The main computing rooms contain Windows XP-based PCs. The PCs are connected to the City, University of London network and to the internet, giving users access to electronic mail, conferencing facilities, and library, academic and business information worldwide. An extensive range of software includes a variety of generic PC software such as word processing, spreadsheet and business graphics, as well as statistical packages and business management software.

The facilities, together with the Computer Support Service, are designed to provide help, advice and full support for you in your coursework and to contribute to research in the development of teaching methodology in the electronic classrooms of the future.

City University Student Centre

The University's Student Centre draws together essential support and guidance facilities for students. This multi-functional space offers students easy access to a range of services as well as an open workshop space equipped with the latest audio-visual equipment and access to touch screen information terminals. The centre is at City's main Northampton Square campus, a short walk from Cass's Bunhill Row site.

More on the Student Centre

"I was immediately drawn to Cass's modern and fit for purpose infrastructure as well as the general buzz of activity, mirroring the atmosphere of a large corporate organisation. Because my first degree was a BA in History at University College London, I usually attributed places of high standard education with large historical campuses, but Cass facilities and the courses on offer provided a great contrast."
