Sneak Peek Inside The Music Box

We’re so close to opening the doors of our brand new building The Music Box. We took a sneak peek at the interior to see how it’s coming along and we were amazed by the results!

Exciting times lie ahead with the opening of The Music Box based in Southwark SE1. The £35 million building offers six floors of top-of-the-range resources for music, writing and coding, including a 200-capacity basement venue. We took some progress pictures in a few different types of spaces in the building:



The spacious ground floor entrance will house a cafe open to students, staff and public, and a community hot-desk.

Office spaces


There’s plenty of bright and airy top-floor office space with views over London and down to the floor below.

Student Services/study space

The Student Services room on the third floor is a massive 40 square metres and double-height, with lots of space and a few computer terminals for students to work quietly, looking out over Union Street with great views of the skyline. You can book out equipment and rooms here too.
