What access do I have to UAL technical resources?

UAL has a wide range of technical resources which are built to serve the learning outcomes of the courses in each college.

Access modes

There are 3 modes of access across the technical resources:

Open Access

This means you can access this any time during the opening hours, you may need a safety induction, if you are unsure, please ask the local technicians.

Project Access

This means you can request access on a per person, per project basis, and subject to approval by the technicans who manage that resource you may be able to use it.

To request access to these resources, please ask in #technical, telling us:

  • What is your project about?
  • What facilities do you need access to?
  • In what way is this facility relivent to your study?
  • How much time do you think this might take?
  • Do you know how to use the equipment already or will need some help with this?

No Access

UAL Diploma students at CCI

Students studying on a UAL Diploma sandwich year that have come from another UAL College or Institute continue to have access to the technical resources they had in their 2nd year of their Batchelors degree.

For example a BA Photography Student who has access to the B&W dark room and the Kit Room at London College of Communication would continue to have the same level of access to those spaces while on their diploma as when they were studying in that 2nd year.

When you return to complete your 3rd year you continue to have access to the CCI technical resources and what ever resources your local team offers for 3rd year students.

PhD students at CCI

All CCI PhD students have project access to all UAL technical resources, and open access to CCI resources.
