New Music and Media Building


Recent RAE (Research Assessement Excersice) and REF (Research Excellence Framework) results have confirmed Royal Holloway’s Music and Media Arts departments as international leaders. Our undergraduate and postgraduate applications for both departments are buoyant too. 

So that we can provide the best research and teaching facilities for students and staff, we are planning to create state-of-the-art facilities in a new shared building next to Piggery Gate, adjacent to Drama in the Boilerhouse complex and the Katherine Worth Building. 

This development will support and enhance Music’s and Media Arts’ research and teaching reputation, whilst also establishing a cultural quarter within this part of the campus that will stimulate interaction between students, staff and the local community. 

The new building will provide exciting new performance and screening spaces as well as enabling the development of synergies between the two departments that will lead to new research collaborations and teaching programmes. 

The ability to deliver the teaching programmes of both departments in specialist in-house facilities will also release much-needed space elsewhere in the College, notably the Arts Building where, in time, provision will be made for the expansion of the newly established Law School.
