University of Ulster, Belfast Campus, Foyer and Gallery
York Street, Belfast, N. Ireland
The Belfast campus on York Street is part of the city’s vibrant Cathedral Quarter. Recognised as the historic heart of Belfast the Cathedral Quarter is the city’s up and coming cultural hotspot. The area is richly endowed with historical, political and artistic character. The area is part of a dynamic arts scene and the campus plays host to a range of Art, Design and Architecture exhibitions, music performances and a number of annual festivals including the Ulster Festival of Art and Design. The campus is made up of two separate buildings, which are connected via a suspended walkway above York Street. Following a major £30 million refurbishment and redevelopment programme students and visitors have access to excellent purpose-built design space, studios for recording and editing live and off-air television, sound recording, mixing and animation, teaching and exhibition areas as well as a new Learning Resource Centre. The campus is currently home to the School of Art and Design and the School of Architecture and Design although other disciplines are increasingly being taught here including programmes offered by the Department of Hospitality and Tourism Management.
