Excellent student studios

The Fine Art building has some of the best studios in the country. This ranges from the open-plan first year studios designed for project work to purpose-built painting, sculpture, printmaking and digital media studios.

All students are allocated their own studio space. We also house designated gallery spaces, bookable project spaces, seminar rooms and a large lecture theatre.

I enjoy having the freedom to make my own work and have access to the great facilities and technical and academic staff.

Specialist workshops and outdoor construction yard

We have specialist workshops for wood, metal, digital/video, casting, ceramics and printmaking, as well as a small black and white photographic darkroom. We also have a large outdoor construction yard suitable for large-scale and dirty work.

All students have the use of the award-winning Robinson Library and very-well equipped computer clusters around the University. 

Students can also take advantage of the drawing studio, in which life-room and other drawing projects take place. Elsewhere in the Fine Art Building, there is a student-run cafe, which is run by students and supports the catalogue and other associated student initiatives for the Degree show in June each year. 

We also have a fine art materials shop which stocks a range of art materials, anything that isn't in stock immediately, and more specialist supplies can be ordered on request.
