Art in our Spaces

The majority of the University Art Collection’s 2,600+ artworks are on display throughout our campuses. Ensuring that our Collection is publicly accessible for all to enjoy is an important function of the University Art Colelction, as is contributing to the diverse and inclusive culture of the University’s built environment.

Our projects and art installations encourage wellbeing and dialogue and are key to facilitating placemaking and storytelling in new and compelling ways for the University and its communities.

Artwork is available for public and executive and some work areas. Senior University staff can approve requests for installation in their faculty or department spaces, common areas and meeting rooms.  This is dependant on suitable work being available in the Art Collection.
