Southwark, home to the University, is not only part of the largest regeneration project in Europe, but SE1 is also a vibrant creative hub.
We have 15 large international media companies on our doorstep as well as television companies, some of the finest theatres in the world and a thriving start-up economy.
We've invested heavily in our on-campus facilities to ensure that our students and commercial partners have access to cutting-edge digital technologies and fit-for-purpose spaces for creative practice.
Facility case studies
A multi-million pound studio complex offering facilities at forefront of digital technologies and multimedia practice for creative students. The studios include: Arri Cameras, Dolby Atmos Surround Sound studios and cinemas, grading suites, innovative news room and games design centre, digital design suites, and industry-ready film and photographic studios.
A dedicated performance and rehearsal space with a 90-seat capacity and the only on campus theatre in London, that can be set up in numerous configurations. The main auditorium, 30-seat studio and backstage facilities are used by drama, performance and technical theatre students. Facilities are available for commercial hire.
The gallery is a home for visual art and a unique part of the University's heritage. Opened in 2012, the Borough Road Gallery contains valuable and significant works of Post War British Art in a public collection, produced by the celebrated artist and teacher David Bomberg (1890-1957).
The University couldn't be better located being only a 10-15 minute walk from the Southbank Centre, National Theatre, BFI IMAX, Tate Modern, Royal Festival Hall, The Old Vic Theatre, The Young Vic and therefore the best of London's plays, performances, exhibitions and screenings.
