City (Adams Building)

Our City centre campus in the Lace Market is made up of a number of buildings - the largest and most impressive being the iconic Adams Building.

This former lace mill from the 1800s was once the centre point of the UK's world renowned lace manufacturing industry but now it's home to a vast range of courses, including TV, Film and Digital Industries, Fashion, Multimedia, Games Development, Business and Administration, Travel and Tourism, our HE Centre, ICT and many more.

The building itself is some seven floors and in our fashion and textiles rooms right at the top of the building, you can enjoy some amazing views of the city.

Across the road we have our Visual Arts courses housed within another impressive building located at 25 Stoney Street. Here we have vast rooms and studios with amazing light so that all our art and design students can do their thing.

It's no coincidence that our Visual Arts and Fashion and Media and Digital courses are in the heart of the Lace Market. The area has been named Nottingham's Creative Quarter where hundreds of small creative businesses operate from. This connectivity and vibrant environment gives our creative students a head start!
