New Adelphi and Chapman Building

At a glance

  • Brand new contemporary facility 
  • 350-seat theatre
  • Excellent Green credentials

The New Adelphi opened its doors in September 2016. The spacious, feature-packed building is a contemporary new gateway to our vibrant campus. Together with its neighbour, the recently refurbished Chapman Building, it offers excellent opportunities for conferences and events.

The New Adelphi is the home of our creative and performing arts students. Each of its five floors contains top-spec, contemporary facilities and equipment.

It features working TV, radio and music studios; 10 performance areas, including a 350-seat theatre; exhibition spaces; large, modern lecture theatres, and a rooftop café and bar.

Together with Chapman’s six modern lecture theatres, café, social areas and private seminar rooms, these buildings provide the perfect location for large conferences and events.

Outside, there are green spaces and seating areas for break-time relaxation and networking.

Our en-suite accommodation are available to book during the summer months when the students are off campus.

New Adelphi has a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rating in line with the University’s sustainability agenda.
