The University owns a large and varied collection of art work which is available to view in various spaces all over campus and includes oil, acrylic and mixed media works. 

We are currently in the midst of a photographic audit of the University Art Collection and, to date, have recorded over 550 pieces. The full collection will soon be available to view online so please check back soon.

In addition to the online photographic record the University's Art Collection is also available to view in a soft back version which was put together in 2006 by The Public Catalogue Foundation. This charity was set up to record to nation's entire collection of oil paintings in public ownership. 

Staff at the University are able to loan works for their offices. Please contact Jo Baker for more information about this initiative. 

The University is custodian of the E. H. Shepard archive, the illustrator of The Winnie The Pooh books by A. A. Milne and The Wind in the Willows among others. Other bequests include fascinating works by Arnold Daghani, a Second World War Romanian refugee who had been incarcerated in a Nazi concentration camp and pastel and watercolour sketches of dancers by the choreographer and dancer, Eilean Pearcey. There is also a collection of prints which are a wonderful historical record of the local area given by Sir William Mullens, the first University Treasurer.
