Northumbria School of Design Facilities

Flexibility is inherent in our building's design. This is essential to support the innovative teaching methods and breadth of activities within the school. Most importantly, with few internal walls and extensive use of internal glazing, the environment in the new building gives a feeling of space, openness and the sense of a single community which is central to the spirit of our school.

Designed following a series of consultations and creative sessions with staff and students, the School of Design has been fitted out with state-of-the-art facilities and the latest in design technology including;

 - Dedicated exhibition gallery and outdoor show spaces
- Modern presentation rooms with the latest screening facilities
- Go Shop @ Design with mezzanine seating area
- Digital photography studio
- CAD suites
- Traditional letterpress and screen printing
- The latest in computer numerically controlled machinery
- Extensive 3D prototyping workshops
- Industry standard textile, printing, knit and garment
- Construction facilities
- Sound studios and recording booths
- Interaction and animation studios
- Mobile laptop facilities
- Postgraduate, research and consultancy suites
