Visit

Nothing beats the sense of belonging visitors feel when they are welcomed on campus, and right now we are pleased to offer both online and in-person visitor experiences.

Our creative campus is uniquely situated in the city centre, yet just 5-10 minutes walk from Plymouth's historic seafront. Whether it's unspoilt coastline and countryside or top nightlife and cultural venues you're looking for, there's something close to Plymouth College of Art for you to enjoy.

A tall tree with bright green and yellow leaves sits in the middle of a courtyard leading of the college Refectory and Student's Union.
