Our facilities

John Lennon Art and Design Building

The £27 million John Lennon Art and Design Building was designed by leading architect Rick Mather and was awarded the RIBA award for Architecture. This iconic six-storey building offers purpose built art and design facilities with seminar rooms, galleries, catering and exhibition space and stunning roof terraces with spectacular city views.


The LJMU Art and Design Degree Show is held in the John Lennon Art and Design Building.

Skills workshop

Our School is equipped with quality workshops, including those related to: technology, laser scanning equipment, 3D-printers, modelling, texturing, animation and haptic reconstruction software. In addition to this, Printing, Life Art and Photography workshops are available to all students and Liverpool Fab Lab is also based in the School.

Social learning spaces

Our School fosters an environment of challenge and debate, which is why we have crafted social learning spaces throughout our School building, including a café and roof terraces.

The Exhibition Research Lab

The Exhibition Research Lab studies the history or exhibitions and the publishing of books. However, it is also used to exhibit student work and to teach curatorial practice. Our Centre attracts visitors from all over the world and was voted as one of the top 10 art venues in Liverpool by The Guardian.

Studio space

Our School has designated studio space for students to pursue their practice. The studio environment fosters a community of art and design activities and interchange of creative ideas between students.
