White House, Thornlea
The Drama Department is based on two sites on the Streatham campus. All of the practical spaces we use are for use only by Drama students, giving us a high degree of flexibility.
The Alexander Building
The Alexander Building was custom-designed for Drama and was opened in 2007 to great acclaim. It houses the main reception for students, staff offices, 2 brand new sprung-floored studios, 3 additional studios, 2 seminar rooms, 2 sound studios, meeting rooms, computer suites, workshops and a large costume store. The postgraduate computer suite is accessible 24 hours.
The White House
The White House is a mansion that was once owned by Alderman W.H.Reed during the early part of the 20th century. He was Mayor of Exeter in 1906 and owned a profitable paper mill in Silverton. The building contains many original architectural features, and now contains 3 large airy rehearsal spaces and staff offices.
The Roborough Studios are based in the former University Library, located on the main campus, 10 minutes walk from Thornlea. The building provides three large fully-equipped adaptable studio spaces along with a seminar room and technical facilities, and is used for large scale performances and events as well as regular rehearsals and practical sessions.
See the Virtual tour for more about these spaces.
