You will have full use of our undergraduate studio building (Mole Architects, 2005). This light-filled space is large enough for all of our undergraduate students to have their own dedicated design space which they can use throughout the year.
WORKSHOP AND MODELLING SHOP
The department has its own on-site workshop and modelling shop which is managed in term time by a workshop supervisor. It is primarily for woodworking, but the Supervisor will endeavor to deal with any needs for working other materials as far as is possible. He is available to discuss specific requirements and to advise on various methods of work. The Supervisor can train students in the use of machinery and hand-held/ power tools in the workshop. The Laser Cutter Room houses two laser cutters and students undergo an induction to use these machines.
DIGITAL AND REPROGRAPHICS
The department has its own on-site reprographics facilities including A0 bright white, heavyweight and tracing paper plotters, scanners and 3D printing. Printing is offered to students at reduced prices from elsewhere in Cambridge. While most students bring their own computing equipment, we also have on-site computing facilities and a photography space. Our dedicated digital support team are on hand to help you with all your printing and reprographic needs throughout the year.
The Department of Architecture has its own on-site library, shared with the Department of History of Art, which is stocked with many of the books that you will need to complete your undergraduate coursework. In addition, you will have access to the vast range of works housed by the University Library, college libraries and subject-specific libraries found around Cambridge.
