City Campus at Arnolfini

City Campus shares the iconic building on Bristol’s historic Harbourside at Narrow Quay, which is also home to Arnolfini gallery. This City Campus site provides a unique setting for accommodating UWE Bristol’s programmes in Graphic Design, Graphic Arts, Drawing and Print, Curating, and parts of our Fashion Communication and Drama and Acting programmes.

Students can also access the ground floor Auditorium in the Arnolfini galleries for lectures, drama workshops and performance workshops. Visual Culture modules are delivered here as well as at other sites within City Campus.


Arnolfini is one of Europe’s leading centres for the contemporary arts, presenting innovative, experimental work in the visual arts, performance, dance, film, music and events, accompanied by a public programme of learning and participation activities.

Arnolfini houses five exhibition spaces, a theatre/cinema auditorium, Reading Room and Light/Dark Studios all housed in this Grade II listed, fully accessible building.
