Grayson Perry unveils the UAL's major investment in Camberwell College of Arts

Camberwell College of Arts, UAL officially opened following a £69 million refurbishment. The redevelopment is part of a wider UAL regeneration investment of £440 million in London – including Chelsea College of Arts' move to Pimlico (2005), Central St Martins' move to King's Cross (2011), and the proposed new London College of Communication site at Elephant and Castle.

The new redevelopment has refurbished much of the 1970s building and created a new 60,000- square foot extension. Together they house an enhanced library, a large lecture theatre and creative studios offering first-class facilities for students and staff spanning ceramics, illustration, graphic design, painting, photography and sculpture, among others. The existing site has been further expanded to offer 264-rooms for student accommodation in a dedicated new building, making it the only art/design London-based college with an on-site campus. The development has been designed by RIBA award-winning Stephen Marshall Architects.
