This beautiful gallery space is dedicated to showcasing the University of Hertfordshire Art Collection. Located at the heart of the Main Building, it occupies the former Main Reception to the University.

Its architecture bears witness to the institution's incredible evolution - for over 60 years this was the gateway into the Hatfield Technical College, then Hatfield Polytechnic and then the University of Hertfordshire. Similarly, our Art Collection charts the institution's evolution from the five stunning founding artworks in 1952 to successive artworks donated or purchased over the decades.


The Chapman Gallery is open
