Information about visiting the Art Rooms
If you are not a member of the University or King’s College you will need an invitation to visit the Art Rooms to show at the main gate on King’s Parade. Please ask for an invitation by emailing the artist or agent (see email address in the exhibition information). The invitation can be printed or displayed on a mobile phone.
The Art Rooms are at the top of Staircase A. Turn left after the main gate and head for the entrace up a few steps in front of you. This leads to the student bar and coffee shop. Just before the main door to the bar and at the top of the few steps there is a white door on the left. Go through and climb two flights of stairs to the second floor. Please note there is no lift access. If the Art Room main door is closed, please enquire at the Porter’s Lodge. Please bear in mind this is not a public gallery or a fully managed exhibition space and the Rooms are used for a variety of activities. For more information please email Dr. Nigel Meager: .
