The Foundation studios are grouped together in the North Building of the University campus and provide spacious and well-equipped accommodation.

Located next to the Gallery and near to the Library, students have excellent access to the Gallery’s rolling programme of exhibitions and events and the Library’s resources. As well as the pathway studios, students have good access to a life drawing studio, a print making workshop, and a very well equipped 3D workshop. These specialist workshops are shared with Degree students so there are good opportunities to work together. There are also 2 dedicated Apple Macintosh Suites all equipped with the latest Art, Design and Media Software and excellent facilities for high-end digital printing with colour calibrated screens and printers. The print room has facilities for screen-printing, relief-printing, etching and lithography.
