Spaces to Explore

Discover our fully refurbished venue when we reopen: with a state-of-the-art new cinema, reworked gallery, new event spaces, and more.

The Creative Learning Space

Everyone is welcome in our Creative Space. At weekends, it's bustling with creative learning activity, often inspired by our programme. 

During term-time it acts as a chill-out space for students or the local community. In the evenings, it's sometimes where we hold post-show talks. 

The noticeboard outside will tell you more. But feel free to explore when you pass through our foyer. For more information on what's coming up in the Creative Learning Space, see What's On.

Music Centre

The Music Centre is at the heart of our building and it's all about celebrating student music. Quite often the music-making spills out into the foyer. 

While you're waiting for a show to start, you can listen in to one of the ensembles or bands while they practice. 

It's also where we hold our free lunchtime concerts. See the Music Centre for Students for more information.

Our Foyer

Our foyer is a space for you to come and meet with friends. Enjoy a drink or a meal, study or simply relax. Our walls showcase an array of art and sculpture which are all part of the University Art Collection

We commissioned two artworks specifically for this space:

The Warwick Dials, a series of clock faces by Richard Wentworth.

Everything is Real There is No Audience, a mural of carved oak measuring over 12 metres long by Mark Titchner.

These works of art each have a story to tell. Come and decide for yourself what those stories are. Find out more information about the University's collection.
