For over 200 years, generations of students have been educated at Goldsmiths, going on to become Oscar winners, leading journalists, and award-winning designers and artists. This Summer School provides you with a unique opportunity to walk the same corridors as our famous alumni and experience our thought-provoking courses.

Our Summer School also offers a full schedule of activities and excursions in London, including a street art tour, and visits to the theatre, Houses of Parliament, and museums. We also offer trips around the UK, and a weekend in Paris.

While you're here


When you join us for a summer school you are guaranteed accommodation at Loring Hall, as long as you apply by the deadline.

Loring Hall is our on-campus accommodation, located just across the road from New Cross Gate Station. It is the most popular halls for Goldsmiths students.

You will have your own room with an en-suite bathroom, a shared kitchen, on-site launderette, courtyard garden, free WIFI, and 24-hour security staff.


Breakfast and lunch are served on campus at set times during the day. All dietary or religious food requirements can be catered for, as long as you tell us about them in advance.

Evening meals are largely served on campus, except during evening excursions or when restaurants are booked. You will have a few evenings free during your time with us, during which we provide food vouchers for the Sainsbury’s supermarket five minutes’ walk from Loring Hall.


We will collect you from London Heathrow Airport Terminal 3 on the first day of the summer school (Friday 3 July 2020), unless you have to delay your arrival.

All your transport costs are included in the residential course fee, and we will give you an Oyster card to use for the duration of the summer school. This is a pre-paid card that can be used on all public transport in London: buses, London underground, trams, the DLR, London Overground, TfL Rail, Emirates Air Line, and River bus services in London zones 1-9.
