The facilities used by the School of Creative Arts are among the best in the British Isles; certain facilities within the School (such as the Sonic Laboratory) are unique in the world! 

The School has two dedicated concert spaces: the Harty Room in the Music building, characterized by its wonderful natural acoustic, and the Sonic Laboratory at SARC which has variable acoustics and facilities for 3D sound projection. 

The Drama & Film centre houses a professional Theatre (Brian Freil Theatre), a 2 screen cinema (Queen's Film Theatre) and a purpose-built film studio.

The school is very well equipped in all its subject areas.  From a large selection of musical instruments and audio recording equipment, to still and moving cameras.  Students will have the opportunity to use this equipment technically and creatively in their relevant course.
