Arts Building

Opened in 2008, the Creative Arts Building is a purpose built space for creative arts practice and teaching, with the music area of the building containing 11 studios, 3 computer labs, many rehearsal rooms and a concert space, Phipps Hall.

Phipps is the smaller of the two concert venues (ca 100 seats) and has a relatively dry acoustic. It will host the fixed media, video music, and some solo instrument events. The Art and Design area of the Creative Arts Building will also be used for the installations and demos. The two sides of the building are linked by a four-storey high Atrium, which has a small coffee stall, tables and benches, and will be a hub for internet access, with laptop workspaces with AC power.

The main conference registration desk and information centre will be in this building.
