Goldsmiths, University of London is located in New Cross, south east London, a densely populated, ethnically diverse, up and coming area, with a distinct bohemian vibe, due to the proximity of Camberwell Arts College, South London Gallery and many gig venues and mid-range galleries in the area. The College is renowned for its contribution to the arts and sciences, producing over 20 Turner Prize winners and it is the home of the Young British Artists, with Damien Hirst, Anthony Gormley, Ceal Floyer and Sam Taylor Wood graduating from there. Lucien Freud, Mary Quant, Bridget Riley, Malcolm McLaren and many other notable persons are amongst Goldsmiths' alumni, which accounts for the many quirkily dressed students going about their daily business in the New Cross area.
The College is housed in the elegant John Shaw building, built in 1844, but the campus is a mix of traditional and contemporary architecture, with a RIBA award-winning modern complex and the Ben Pimlett Building, both of which employ ultra trendy styles and materials. The Ben Pimlett building also has a stunning sculpture called Scribble in the Sky, which gives a nod of recognition to the College's art successes.
The Worshipful Company of Goldsmiths, a jewellery company, which dates back to the 12th century, giving the College artistic roots, established the College in 1891 as Goldsmiths’ Technical and Recreative Institute. The College wasn't expanded until the 1960s after bomb damage in the war. Since then it has become one of London's premier institutions, with a heavy focus on humanities subjects. The College's Sociology department, Department of Design, Department of Anthropology, English and Comparative Literature Department and Department of Music has produced many luminaries, from songwriters such as Katy B and James Blake, to philosophers such as Paul Gilroy and Bev Skeggs. However, in recent years, cuts to humanities grants have been proposed and an increase in fees, which led to three protests, during which students occupied the campus; however, the cuts and fee increase are under review, so Goldsmiths' future still looks bright. In fact the College ranks highly in League tables, such as the Times Good University Guide and the Guardian University Guide, being ranked 52nd and 58th in the country respectively, in 2011.
The College also has a lively Student Union, runs a College magazine and a radio station and has 11 sports clubs, including more unusual activities such as baseball. It truly is an excellent place to study, especially if you fancy yourself as the next Turner Prize winner, and New Cross is an interesting part of London, with plenty of nightlife to make your stay more exciting. If you are a prospective student or a visiting family, you can stay in the Peckham Lodge, which offers low cost, but comfortable accommodation. The Bermondsey Square Hotel offers funky, design-led rooms in one of London's newest style centres. The Novotel London Greenwich offers reasonable room rates and reliably good service and Davenport House in Greenwich offers traditional elegance for a more luxurious stay.
