The Scott building
The Scott building provides a hub for many of our arts-based course, offering a wealth of facilities from printing and ceramics to photography and film production.
Situated within our city-centre campus, the Scott Building is a 19th-century building which was modernised specifically to accommodate our arts courses.

This practical hands-on experience, in-sync with the University's connections with industry in the city and beyond, really helps with student employability once they graduate.

The University is committed to discouraging the use of private cars, however, it continues to permit very limited car parking on campus for staff and visitors who hold a blue badge.
Only students with mobility impairment will normally be permitted to park on the Plymouth campus.
The University operates a Parking Charge Notice (PCN) enforcement system to assist in maintaining an orderly and safe parking facility on its campus. The enforcement system is managed and operated in partnership with First parking LLP and the security department at the University.
Alternative parking can be found in Drake Circus shopping mall and the Regent Street car park nearby. Charges apply.
