Goldsmiths is small but mighty – a close-knit community based on a single-site campus within London’s vibrant New Cross, an area that’s been described by The New York Times as a hub of creative talent.

New Cross has a thriving music and arts scene, fantastic restaurants, buzzing cafes, and a genuinely diverse and eclectic population. Plus, it’s just a short journey away from the centre of London, and all of the entertainment, facilities and opportunities that offers.
