A view of City Campus at Spike Island

City Campus at Spike Island

Our site at Spike Island is situated on the ground floor of Spike Island, where studios and facilities for our Fine Art programmes are located

Our postgraduate art and design students are also entitled to free membership of the Spike Associates scheme, a valuable network that supports emerging creative practitioners. Some of our research activity also takes place here, sharing synergies with other activities carried out by Spike Island and its studio holders.

Spike Island

Spike Island is home to a gallery, café and working space for artists, designers and creative businesses. Throughout the year, a programme of exhibitions and events take place, showcasing new work by artists from across the world and inspiring people to engage directly with creative practices through participation and discussion (many events are free or offer a student discount). Spike Island is a fully accessible building.
