The School is centrally located on campus with easy access to all University services.
The Architecture Building is a listed Edwardian building in the Quadrangle, the oldest part of the University. This is a beautiful place to sit in the summer, and provides a wonderful backdrop for graduation photos!
Architecture students have access to the Architecture Building 24 hours a day, seven days a week. They can also use their dedicated studio spaces at all times.
Planning students are based in Claremont Tower and have access to a dedicated planning studio with computing facilities and social space.
As part of wider campus developments the School has undertaken its own redevelopment projects over recent years, including:
- refurbishing crit and gallery spaces
- extending and updating the workshop
- a new student-run coffee bar
- newly refurbished ateliers studios
- a new planning social space
- updating all student computing and printing facilities
Throughout 2016 we will be investing £2.4 million in a new building on campus that will provide a purpose built, expanded workshop and a dedicated fabrication suite. The workshop will have dedicated spaces for laser cutting and 3D printing. In addition, there will be three floors of studio space and a new review space. It will be completed early 2017.
The School’s purpose-built new workshop consists of a fully-equipped analogue model making workshop and a suite of digital fabrication equipment including: laser cutters, 3D printers and CNC routers. Students receive instruction and training from expert technicians and have the opportunity to gain lots of hands-on experience of both traditional and the latest digital making techniques.
The workshop is open weekdays between 9:00-17:00. Advice and instruction is provided by our expert technical staff.
