Your exhibition slot will run for 11 days, Tuesday to the following Friday (inclusive of the weekend). This includes installation and de-installation.
You will need to plan for installation, de-installation and making good of the space within your hire time. It is important that you keep to these times, as the space is often booked back-to-back.
Central Saint Martins - the space is accessible throughout college opening hours as it is an open access space.
LCF, High Holborn - you will need to collect the gallery key from the Creative Opportunities team at the Students' Union on the first floor. You will be asked to hold on to the space key for the for the duration of your booking.
London College of Communication - the space is accessible throughout college opening hours as it is an open access space for students.
Installation for all sites: 10am – 6pm
Invigilation: Within the above time you need to decide on how you intend to rota and invigilate the show. For solo shows you may need to state this on any promotional content when you intend to be present.
Unfortunately not, but we are happy to troubleshoot ideas with you during the space induction and at any time leading up to and throughout the booking.
For basic exhibitions at LCF, High Holborn, we may be able to support this (though this is very much based on staff flexibility and is not a given), with this in mind the work will be left un-invigilated at your own risk. As an example those exhibitions or projects with multiple audio visual requirements will need to be opened and closed by yourself.
Unfortunately, at all other sites (Central Saint Martins and London College of Communication) we don't have the resources for this, so it is your responsibility to open and close the exhibition each day you wish for it to be open. Think about what time you can realistically commit to and set your opening hours accordingly, for example, Wednesday afternoon, Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
It is highly recommended that you invigilate the space at busy times like lunchtime, and at the beginning and end of the day.
Yes. Each site is different so please take note of the below:
Please be aware that no food is to be consumed at any event in our spaces at UAL

Arts SU unfortunately does not have the budget to fund any of the additional required costs for serving alcohol at exhibitions.
If you don’t have budget - but would like a drink after your private view why don’t you reserve a table in the Platform Bar and bring your friends there for a drink.
Contact email@example.com to reserve a table or two (subject to other bookings).
There may be occasions when due to content of an Exhibition the CSM Events Team will advise extra staffing or age restrictions are put in place for private views.
