The Faculty of Arts operates across two sites on central campus: Ramphal, which is home to the School of Cross Faculty Studies, including Global Sustainable Development and Liberal Arts, and the brand new Faculty of Arts Building, which is a hub for interdisciplinary collaboration and teaching excellence for all of our subject disciplines.

“'The new Faculty of Arts Building (the FAB) is all about collaboration: between the architects, the contractors, our Estates team and the Arts Faculty in creating a student-focused and community space. While providing a collective home for all the Arts and Humanities disciplines, it is a building for the whole of the University as well as for engagement with the wider community. It will facilitate and enrich research and teaching collaboration between disciplines and co-creation with our students, a place for everyone to enjoy and thrive."
Professor Penny Roberts
Vice-Provost and Chair of the Faculty of Arts
