Why choose Ravensbourne?

We're a diverse fusion of creative practices based in the very heart of London; creating, making and collaborating all under one roof. Here are just some of the reasons our students love being part of our Ravensbourne community.


A place like no other

At Ravensbourne, we do things differently. Just take a look at our award-winning building - there's nowhere else quite like it in London.

Within its walls lives a community bursting with creativity. Like-minds, who don’t believe there are silly ideas - just ideas - and who are brave enough to take creative risks. It's a place where ideas collide, people connect and disciplines unite.

Our diverse community means you’ll have the freedom to be yourself, to find your voice and discover what creativity truly means to you. Here's what our students have to say.

21st-century learning environment

Equally impressive inside, the building is arranged around a vast, sweeping atrium, the building is made up of four interconnected storeys, split floors and open-studio learning.

Its design is to encourage collaboration between the different disciplines and practices within Ravensbourne and to stimulate the work of creative professionals.

Featuring a variety of workspaces, including social and quiet areas, high-tech creative suites, technology hubs, design studios and more, it has:

  • an area of 17,000m2 to house 1,400 students in inter-disciplinary, open-plan workspaces
  • a £16m industry-standard high-definition digital broadcast facility
  • two floors of the latest technology for 2D and 3D printing
  • a roof-garden with views of the Thames
  • cafe and retail space on the lower ground floor

Environmental excellence

Last but not least, the building is also extremely clever, scoring a BREEAM qualification of environmental excellence.

The enormous atrium connecting the university to the outside world provides airflow to the rest of the building.

Each studio space comes with a double row of circular windows that provides ample daylight and offsets the need for artificial lighting.

And the building is cooled by a chilled beam system that efficiently heats and cools the building by channelling energy through the floor.
