State of the art University

London College of Communication, UAL is a pioneering world leader in creative communications education and has been at the heart of Elephant and Castle for over half a century.

The new town centre will include a cutting-edge new building for London College of Communication and UAL’s core university services, ensuring this iconic institution can continue its future in the area.

The College will act as a key building block for encouraging culture and vibrancy in the new town centre and build on Southwark's existing capacity for the digital technology industries, bringing design and gaming, TV and film into a new creative hub at Elephant and Castle.

As well as continuing to deliver educational and economic benefit to the area, the new permeable site will enable London College of Communication to increase access to its public programme of workshops, events and exhibitions.

In addition to the existing jobs already based at the College, the new site will also create new local employment opportunities with the relocation of UAL's core university services to Elephant and Castle.

  • Really excited about the proposed plan for Elephant and Castle regeneration. I think its needed as I feel Elephant and Castle is being left behind in comparison to the rest of London. I also feel LCC is a vital part of the local community and would like them to remain in the area.
