UHArts is located in Hatfield, just 25 minutes by train from London King's Cross station and within easy access of the A1(M).

As our campuses are busy during term time, we recommend using the Park and Ride facility or parking at the Forum car park on College Lane, if visiting the Art & Design Gallery, Chapman Gallery or Sculpture Walk.

A map of the campuses can be found here. If you have any questions, please call UHArts office on 01707 285395.

The Campuses

The University of Hertfordshire has two campuses: College Lane and de Havilland. UHArts runs activities across both campuses, so please check the location of your event in advance.

Our events are hosted mostly at the Art & Design Gallery (College Lane) and Weston Auditorium (de Havilland); both sites are situated less than a kilometre apart. A network of pathways, cycle routes and shuttle buses connect the sites.
