Founded in 1891 and part of the prestigious University of London since 1904, Goldsmiths combines historic architecture and traditional ties to the neighbourhood with cutting edge research (in the UK’s top 25 for the quality of our research according to the REF 2014) and facilities for students across a wide range of subject areas. Goldsmiths is committed to being a world leader in the arts and as such has recently made significant investment in this area on campus – renovating the George Wood theatre in summer 2018 at a cost of £2.9 million to provide a contemporary theatre to seat 200 people, as well as two new studio spaces for creative practice. The Goldsmiths Centre for Contemporary Art, opened in summer 2018 is London’s newest contemporary arts institution, bringing world-class exhibitions by international artists, and providing a space for established and emergent practices to South East London.
