Our digital civics research is based at Open Lab, part of Newcastle University’s School of Computing. We are located in the Urban Sciences Building at Science Central in the west end of the city.

From the A1 motorway, take the A184 exit signed Newcastle/Gateshead, followed by the A189 exit to cross over the River Tyne. Follow the signs for Newcastle city centre until you reach Science Central. Then take a left turn onto Wellington Street, where the Urban Sciences Building is located.
