Covid-19 has changed the way we work, but we are still able to support research visits for UAL staff and students and for external researchers. If you have a research enquiry, please contact us at the usual address and staff will do their best to help. Please book a week in advance.
The Museum & Study Collection is open to everyone for inspiration and information. It tells the story of Central Saint Martins’ rich history. The collection contains work produced by staff and students, a large art and design teaching collection, the British Artists’ Film and Video Collection, and some historical college records.
The teaching collection spans the 13th century to the present, and includes early printed books, prints, illuminated manuscripts, embroideries, 1920s German film posters, textiles and garments. We hold material created by CSM staff and students over the last one hundred years, and have collected from degree shows for the past two decades.
