At Leeds Arts University we pride ourselves on our state-of-the-art resources and libraries. We have won the Whatuni Student Choice Award for Best Facilities three times in six years (2019, 2016 and 2014) and came second in 2017, 2018 and 2020.

All our buildings have been designed and built for specialist arts education, whether this was the Vernon Street art school in 1903 or our latest building at Blenheim Walk which was completed in January of 2019. Dedicated course studios set up to facilitate specialist disciplines are complemented by open working areas designed to enable students across courses to meet up, work and socialise together.

Specialist Resources

Our resources are equipped to industry standards, and are run by highly skilled staff who contribute significantly to our teaching. Resources have a drop-in facility so you can carry on working in your own time providing you’ve completed your resource inductions. Our differing facilities are based across our Vernon Street and Blenheim Walk sites. Facilities at Blenheim Walk have been designed to meet the needs of Higher Education students whilst those at Vernon Street are available to Further Education students.

We take great care to manage our resources so that they offer the appropriate support to students at the right level and according to their curriculum needs. You will therefore find differential access to these facilities according to your choice of course.
