Cambridge School of Creative Industries facilities

MPA Our facilities

All of our courses are based on Anglia Ruskin’s Cambridge campus, at the very heart of the city.

Our University has invested over £81 million over the last five years in the very latest learning environments, and our students have benefited from many new facilities.

Music facilities

If you’re an avid musican, you can lose yourself in our digital music editing and recording studios, with Pro Tools HD and NI Komplete. We also have a host of synthesisers and other instruments, both electronic and orchestral, a music technology lab with Apple Macs running Pro Tools, Logic, Sibelius and Ableton, and a recital hall with a Steinway Model D piano.

Film, television and media facilities

Make yourself at home in our industry-standard TV studio; dabble in our film editing suites, equipped with Final Cut Pro and Steenbecks for 16mm editing; help yourself to a huge range of mobile equipment, from Steadicam to medium format cameras. Or, if radio is more your thing, you might want to join in with CAM FM, a student-run radio station with studios at the Fitzwilliam Museum and our own Cambridge campus.

Computer games facilities

Our games development studio at Compass House simulates a commercial working studio and features motion capture equipment, an arsenal of HD cameras and Digital SLRs (for HDRI capture), and a dedicated suite of high-end PCs with graphics tablets running 3D modelling, animation and compositing software such as Maya, Motion Builder, 3DS Max, After Effects, Mudbox, ZBrush, and Unity 3D.

Drama and performing arts facilities

As a drama or performing arts student, you’ll get to work in our Covent Garden studio, complete with a flexible black-box performance space, as well as our additional rehearsal space and the University’s industry-standard television studio.

On campus, our Mumford Theatre regularly hosts professional touring companies and musicians, but you'll also get to use it during your studies for workshops, rehearsals and putting on shows. As one of our students, you'll also have the chance to take up paid work at the theatre as a trainee technician (lighting or sound) or front-of-house as a steward. The theatre also offers a graduate trainee role on a rolling basis.

Jerome Booth Music Therapy Centre

Home to our arts therapy courses and research, our centre on Young Street is the largest university-based centre in the UK, and is fully equipped with high-quality musical instruments and recording equipment. We provide clinical arts-based therapies for private individuals, local groups, voluntary organisations and charities, in addition to statutory health, education and social services.
