Campus Features

McNally Campus

Situated in the central civic and cultural district of Singapore, the McNally Campus is designed to optimise interaction and provide line of sight across the community through its glass façade and gateless walls. The design provides many platforms for interaction and inspiration. In keeping with the integrative nature of contemporary arts and design practice, multiple breakout spaces and sky bridges encourage diverse art forms to coalesce and co-mingle, providing an inspiring learning environment for students. Architecturally iconic and designed to enable a vibrant, connected community, the McNally Campus offers students an impressive array of performance and exhibition spaces for learning and showcasing. Core lectures and teaching programmes take place at the McNally Campus where LASALLE’s unique learning environment encourages interdisciplinary interaction and a holistic approach to contemporary practice.

Winstedt Campus

The Winstedt Campus supports continuous innovation and excellence by supporting studio-based work and research. The space is designed as a comprehensive creative centre that visual arts students – in particular those involved in studio-based modules and levels – can utilise ample and appropriate spaces to develop and complete their semester projects, especially when some of these works might be larger in scale and ambition.

Wilkie Edge learning space

The Wilkie Edge learning space supports studio-based work and research of the Faculty of Design. Located just 50 metres away from the McNally Campus, the Wilkie Edge learning space is used for studio-based modules of the School of Design Communication and School of Fashion.
