Welcome to Camberwell

Students making art

A message from our Pro Vice Chancellor:

“Welcome to Camberwell College of Arts. You’ve joined the college at an exciting time – you will be amongst the first students to benefit from our wonderful purpose-built facilities which include the new canteen, gallery, library and lecture theatre.

Your college is 1 of 3 that work very closely together: Camberwell, Chelsea and Wimbledon. Each of our 3 art colleges has its own special character with an international network of partners and alumni. Together we have a shared desire to explore the possibilities of our disciplines and to help you build your career as a creative professional.

It’s really important to me that you get the most from your time here so I encourage you to get involved in all the opportunities on offer at Camberwell and at UAL.

I am delighted you have chosen to study with us and wish you every success during your time here.”
