Cultural benefits

Working at the university means you have access to many of the fantastic facilities available on campus, from our extensive library collection to art galleries and onsite museum as well as cafes and shops. Find out more below:

There are two galleries at the Streatham Campus, which regularly display work by local and nationally acclaimed artists. There is no charge to visit these.

For further information please visit the Fine Art Collection webpages.

Founded in 1994, the Centre contains an enormous collection relating to the history of film and visual media. From shadow puppets to Shirley Temple dolls, from magic lanterns to Marilyn Monroe postcards, there is something to fascinate every visitor. The Centre’s museum is open free of charge to the public. Further information can be found on the Bill Douglas Centre webpages.
