WaterBear College HQ
Our central Brighton campus has been purpose-built to reflect the WaterBear teaching and learning ethos.  You will not find large classrooms with rows of chairs facing front; our teaching spaces have a more intimate feel, designed to stimulate peer discussion and facilitate deep learning.  There is free WiFi throughout, with plenty of space (and charging points) at the tables for your laptops, notebooks and equipment you’ll need for each activity. Bespoke artwork in every space blends with both vintage and brand new musical equipment, together with state-of-the-art digital audio/visual technology in a unique blend of old and new.

Our space is flexible and multi-facetted to allow for many different activities, from lectures and seminars, to masterclasses, recording sessions and live performance – we even have a dedicated space for social media creation, something vital in today’s creative industries.  We also host our regular open days here, giving everyone the chance to come and see this unique learning environment first hand.



A City-Wide Campus
In addition to the main College HQ, we regularly hold timetabled activities in venues across the city.  This approach creates a diverse collegiate environment, providing students the opportunity to learn in spaces most appropriate to their activities.  What better place to learn live performance skills than in the exclusive confines of the Green Door Store music venue, or studio recording techniques at Small Pond and the famed Retreat studios?  We also offer all WaterBear students free rehearsal time at Small Pond studios and Monster studios.


A word from our patron...

I'm very proud to be a patron of WaterBear. It's a wonderful place, and a vital one. Their work is essential in developing the careers of the next generation of our creative industries, both on the stage and behind the scenes. It's exciting and humbling for me to be around so much passion and energy! I'm looking forward to seeing you all at graduation!
