Welcome to the Research Centre for Social Sciences (ReCSS), the central home for the social sciences at the University of York.

On this website you will find details of our events and training, as well as links to our constituent departments and centres at the university.

ReCSS is the principal space for social research training and offers dedicated facilities for workshops, visiting scholars and conferences. We are also the home of the White Rose Doctoral Training Centre and provide high-quality accommodation for PhD students from across the campus in an interdisciplinary environment.

The social science community at York is widely recognised within the UK and internationally, and we welcome colleagues and students to visit the Centre, to participate in its many activities, and build on our ambition to provide a space in which our socially-relevant and exciting contributions can be broadcast to those outside the university.
