Special collections and museums
As a research-intensive university, we have amassed an incredible collection of artefacts over the last 150 years. In addition to the collections held by Arts & Communication Design, the University's Special Collections, which include rare books, archives and manuscripts, cover a broad range of subjects from art to science, and highlights such as the Beckett Collection, the world's largest collection of Samuel Beckett resources.
Arts & Communication Design is located on the award-winning Whiteknights campus, voted as one of Britain's top green spaces for the ninth consecutive year in the 2019 Green Flag Awards.
