Buildings and Spaces

CCI is spread across multiple buildings along Peckham Road, South London.

You can see the locations of these spaces and the halls of residence in this map:

Peckham Road (building)

Peckham Road (PR) was the first building CCI occupied, we're spread across the 4th and 5th floors of the new B block at this site which opened in 2018. This complex of 5 buildings (A, B, C, D and Gardens House) is shared with Camberwell College of Arts who've been located here since 1898.


At the Reception, you can recieve information, pride badges, and directions to spaces (providing know the room number, reception can tell you where it is).

The Security team can be found at the reception. You can identify them by their grey jumpers. If you have an accident / feel unsafe / need safety support, go to the security team and they will be able to help.

The canteen is a great place to sit and work, socialise, or just have some time to yourself. Breakfast is served here from 9am and there are lots of food and drink options for everyone (halal, vegan, gluten free options etc.) Bike storage is situated just outside.

Art Shop

The art shop offers loads of affordable art supplies. You can ask the art shop staff about what materials are best to use for your projects and where to get materials that aren’t currently available in the art shop. You can also buy UAL merch here! It is worth noting that they don't accept cash, so you can only pay with a credit or debit card.

Learning Zone

The Learning Zone is part of the library and is open to all UAL students. This is the same with all UAL libraries. It is open 24/7 and they have lockers for laptops where you can swipe you card and loan a library laptop.

Other facilities that will usually be available here are photography and scanning, sewing machines etc.

It is a great place to work if you’re a night owl!

Student Centre

The Student Centre can be found in Block A, 1st floor and opening times are displayed at the entrance. As you walk in, the desk on the right is where you can ask questions and get advice. The desks on the left are where you will go and collect your Student ID card. A quiet room in the Student Centre can be used as a place for quiet reflection, worship, rest and other health requirements.


We have an amazing library supported by a dedicated CCI librarian (Benelia Salmon), who oversees the subject area of Creative Computing, ensuring the library stays up to date with the books, periodicals, databases and other resources you need to complete your studies. You can contact Benelia via Slack and email.

The library has books, journals, publications, copying resources for printing, cutting, stapling etc. Specific paper is available for dyslexic students to print on.

There are lots of workspaces and computers which can be booked.

Special collections can be accessed through the library resources page on the website. Here there are lots of old things like the Camberwell College of Arts Prospectuses from 1973!

Our Kitchen is a communal space as well as a learning space: at lunch time it becomes the social hub of CCI folks to share lunch together, and during classes it’s a quiet working space. Outside of those times the kitchen might be used for talks or workshops. We have fridges, a dishwasher, cutlery and lots of nice plants. There are also pods which can be used when they are not booked as a quiet space to work and a space to have your tutorials.
