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 Loft rehearsal space (used by Royal Blood & Architects) the legendary Green Door Store music venue, or studio recording techniques at Small Pond and the famed Retreat studios (previous clients include Nick Cave & Bat For Lashes).  We also offer all WaterBear students Free Rehearsal Space at Small Pond studios and Ooosh Tours studios.
