The STOR-i Centre for Doctoral Training is based at Lancaster University in the north-west of England. The University is situated in an idyllic campus setting sheltered by the Bowland Fells and set in 250 acres of parkland less than four miles south of the historic city centre of Lancaster.

‌The STOR-i CDT is centrally-located on the University campus in the Science and Technology Building. In order to strongly support the development of a group identity, you will have an office based in the Science and Technology Building alongside your peers and integral STOR-i academic and administrative team members.

The majority of STOR-i training is focused in the prestigious Postgraduate Statistics Centre. The award-winning building provides innovative state-of-the-art teaching and socialising spaces with features focused on environmental performance. This facility houses purpose-built lecture rooms with podcasting and video recording facilities, an access node, computing labs, conference space, offices, formal meeting rooms for group activities, open plan learning zones and mixing space for socialising and informal work discussion. One of the architects' aims was the creation of a vibrant building of natural light to encourage students and staff to interact in a relaxed and informal way. Experience to date suggests they have been successful.
