In 2008 the RCA embarked on an ambitious plan, pledging to spend over £38.8 million to create a new campus in Battersea, London. The College’s desire to provide the best student experience and state-of-the-art facilities has driven this landmark project.

The 8,000sqm Battersea campus is creating state-of-the-art workshops, student studios, a lecture theatre, gallery and an incubator for start-ups emerging from student projects. 

The first two phases of this project have seen the creation of two new buildings. The Sackler Building opened in 2009, providing purpose-built studios for Fine Art. Following this, the Dyson Building opened in 2012 to house Printmaking, Photography, a 220-seat lecture theatre, an exhibition space and InnovationRCA, the College’s entrepreneur hub. 

In 2015 the Woo Building will open, marking the final phase of the project. It will house modern project spaces and some of the best facilities in the world for Ceramics & Glass and Jewellery & Metal. 

So far, we have secured more than 80 per cent of the target £38.8 million and as the campaign enters its final stages, we're asking for support from those who want to invest in our creative vision for the future. These significant additions to our estate are essential. They provide the highest quality space and facilities that will allow the very best graduate artists and designers to study at the Royal College of Art.

We would be delighted to discuss how your gift can be allocated to a particular programme or used to name a space.
