In summer 2020 Wimbledon College of Arts begun site development work as part of a multimillion pound investment programme, due for completion in late summer 2022.

The work will support the college’s transformation to a world-leading performance centre providing high quality design studios, rehearsal rooms and theatre facilities for students interested in studying acting and performance design at undergraduate and postgraduate level.

The redevelopment of the site will deliver the following improvements:

  • Updating the theatre and green screen facilities
  • Refurbishment of the current design studios
  • The creation of a new digital performance studio
  • A refurbished main reception
  • Improving the front of the main college buildings
  • Adding more greenery to the external landscaping

In addition to improving the student experience and creating a more positive and attractive presence for our students, staff, visitors and neighbours, the planned site developments are also an opportunity to create a more environmentally friendly college. This will be achieved through measures such as better insulation, improving energy efficiency in fixtures and looking at using modern, sustainable materials.

The college will be open as usual during these developments, with most work completed in phases during the summer months in order to minimise the disruption to students and general public.
