Book an Undergraduate Tour

We are pleased to announce that our city-centre campus is now welcoming prospective students and their family and friends on-site. To arrange an in-person tour of our undergraduate building Tavistock Place, please follow the link below. Advance booking is essential.



If you’ve ever wondered what goes on inside our studios and workshops or would like to talk informally with someone about your future in creative study, a tour is a great place to start your research. From Wednesday 5 August bookable tours will be available every Wednesday and Friday, allowing the public to explore a diverse range of degrees in art, design and digital media, alongside our Students Union, The Gallery, Plymouth Arts Cinema and more. 

Our knowledgeable staff will also be on-hand to answer any questions you may have about entry requirements, portfolios, employability, student finance and accommodation. 

If you are unable to attend on a Wednesday or Friday we may be able to offer alternative dates upon request. To arrange a visit please email 

Ensuring your safety 

Extensive measures have been introduced across each Plymouth College of Art building to prepare for reopening. When you arrive for your tour we will take your temperature using a scanner and ask for some basic contact details to support the Local Authority and Public Health England’s Track and Trace initiative. From protective plastic barriers and 2-metre distances between workstations to one way systems and sanitising stations - find out how we are protecting the safety of staff, students and the public.

Accommodation Tours

Our halls and houses are safe, affordable and ideally located just a few minutes walk from the main site. New starters enjoy no deposit and no additional fees, plus a guaranteed place in their first year! This year our recommended accommodation providers HOST and Clever Student Lets are also pleased to offer negotiated contracts starting from the 3rd October upon request. 

If you would like to combine your visit with a personal tour of our Halls of Residence and privately-owned student houses please email 

Pre Degree Tours at Palace Court

Did you know places are still available on our Extended Diplomas and International Baccalaureate programme, starting this Autumn? If you are awaiting GCSE results and thinking about your post-16 options in further education, we highly recommend booking a tour of our dedicated Pre-Degree Campus. For more information please click here or email

Online Alternatives

If you are shielding or do not wish to travel to the campus, we can still arrange to give you a live campus walk-through via video call (e.g Google Meet or Zoom). Please email to arrange a video tour and check out our 360 Virtual Tour.
