Commercial Road closure

As students currently based in Commercial Road will know, they will shortly be relocating to nearby Calcutta House ready for the start of the new academic year. 
This project is progressing well and we are now able to share further details on key moves.

Workshops and studios

On Tuesday 27 June all workshops in Commercial Road will be closed, with the exception of G-15 which will remain open until Friday 12 August. 
The new replacement facilities in Calcutta House will open in early September with the exception of the workshops and studios on the Ground and Basement floors which will open in late September.  
There will be studio access until 2 August (the day after the resubmission deadline.) This may be limited to certain areas or rooms and details of these will be shared later.
The studios and CassWorks facilities in Central House for Ceramics, Jewellery and Photography will remain open on a Summer Schedule.


Clearing your lockers

By Friday 22 July all lockers in Commercial Road must be empty. Please note that all items left in lockers after that date will be disposed of.

Removing your work

By Friday 22 July all students' work must be taken home. Please note that all items remaining after that date will be disposed of. 

Commercial Road Library

On Friday 22 July, Commercial Road library will close, at 7pm. The material in that library will be unavailable for one week only whilst it is transferred to the extended Calcutta House library which we are re-naming Aldgate library.
Access to printers will be available. Further details will be provided closer to the time.
From Friday 8 July 2016 all Commercial Road library and Calcutta House library one week loan books will become three week loans. This extension will be in place for the duration of the moves and relocation of stock.  
Where possible, please borrow your books in advance of the move of Calcutta House library stock to its position in the new Aldgate Library and the Commercial Rd library closure date. We will remind you nearer the date.
We will be working hard to make all the books accessible in the new Aldgate library as quickly as possible.
