Wimbledon
College of Arts
The warm, close-knit community spirit of
historic Wimbledon, our smallest College
with just 1,100 students, is integral to
its success in producing outstanding
graduates of fine art and theatre design.
Just an easy 15 minutes by train from
the centre of London, its well-equipped
studios, workshops and exhibition spaces
are surrounded by leafy open spaces.
Wimbledon’s range of specialist facilities
include metal, wood, print, dye, costume,
and technical arts and special effects
workshops, as well as an animation suite,
darkrooms, a sound studio, a film and video
studio, and green screen facilities. The
recent renovation of the 150 seat theatre to
incorporate sound and film studios, along
with the opening of a new sustainable
studio building has further enhanced the
facilities there. Students comment that the
College is far enough away from the centre
of London to have real space to think and
work in, but close enough to be able to
access London’s rich cultural life.
