Students in our faculty have access to facilities in a number of buildings across City and Headingley Campuses. In the heart of the city are the award-winning Broadcasting Place development, impressive Built Environment & Engineering laboratories in Northern Terrace, dedicated film and performing arts studios in Electric Press, Queen Square and Calverley Building and extensive IT facilities in Woodhouse Building.
The University’s Headingley Campus, a leafy parkland setting, houses our industry-standard music performance studios, visual media and IT labs. The Landscape Resource Centre is also located here, providing an outside space for Landscape Architecture practice.
You can find more details about subject specific equipment and learning spaces on our Creative Spaces page.
The Leeds School of Art, Architecture & Design has practice at its heart. Whether working in our studio spaces in Broadcasting Place or working site-specifically, live projects and making are essential to everything we do. This strength is in our courses and is also reflected in our staff, who are practitioners and researchers of national and international standing.
