Our building and facilities

There is a long tradition of high quality teaching and research about theatre, film and television at the University of York, but the Department of Theatre, Film and Television is one of the university’s newer ventures, part of a major expansion, drawing on significant investment.

The department moved into a superb £30m building in September 2010. The facilities and equipment in this extensive media complex are central to our teaching, but also have a significant commercial dimension and are available for hire by industry professionals:

  • two theatres
  • two television studios
  • a large sound stage
  • production labs
  • extensive post-production facilities and a digital cinema
  • rehearsal rooms, changing rooms, workshops etc.

Equipment and software are industry standard, from our theatre lighting to our Red Digital Cinema production camera kits to post production using the Adobe CC Suite and other leading industry packages.
