Art and design facilities
The programme is based in the new Vijay Patel building at De Montfort University which has been designed and built especially for art and design subject environments. The building’s infrastructure facilitates collaboration and opens up opportunities you may not have thought of before.
Based within the subject of fashion, in the School of Design, the programme also works with the School of Visual Arts where you will experience learning the techniques of and working in the photography and video media suites and digital presentation environments.
We have 1,600 study places and more than 700 computer workstations across all library locations on campus. These give access to more than half a million print publications, thousands of e-books and e-journals and a huge range of DVDs plus a host of research databases.
The main Kimberlin Library is open 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year (other than in exceptional circumstances).
The Library is run by dedicated staff who offer additional support to students, including academic writing, research strategies, literature searching and reference management. There is also a Just Ask service for help and advice, available via email or telephone.
Our comfortable and well-equipped study areas provide a range of environments to suit your needs.
Our Learning Zones and The Greenhouse provide flexible spaces, whether you are working as a group, practising a presentation or working quietly on your own.
They feature workstations with power supplies for laptops, plus bookable syndicate rooms with plasma screens, laptops and DVD facilities. Wi-Fi is available across all campus locations.
