College of Arts building

Building info

This new facility will create an outward facing cultural centre that extends the global reach and reputation of the College of Arts.

It will aid research by providing facilities to support performance-based practices, audio-visual arts, creative writing and research. It will also present greater opportunities for integration and public understanding of the relevance of Arts and Humanities research at institutional, national and international levels.

Fostering greater ambition and increased engagement with University strategic priorities, the new College facility will provide space for lectures and cultural events, debate and a world-class learning experience, with modern built-for-purpose learning and teaching spaces.
