espressoMaths started in September 2008 and is run, and funded, by the Faculty of Environment and Technology (FET) for all members of the University community. If you need help with a particular mathematical or statistical problem, then just pop along to espressoMaths and have a chat with the staff member on duty, who will be able to provide you with free, user-friendly advice. Please note that the expected interaction time is about ten minutes.

The espressoMaths drop-by service is available online to field short queries in mathematics and statistics topics. Support will be on a first come, first served basis. Starts from Monday 7th February until Friday 8th April. There will be a brief break for the Easter vacation, before running again between Monday 25th April and Friday 6th May.
