There are numerous subject-relevant labs, classrooms, art studios, IT facilities and a lecture theatre and drama studio, to provide the standard of education you would expect from one of the top colleges in the country.
Our excellent facilities support a varied programme of performances, workshops and external classes across the College as a whole, which you will be able to access as part of your studies.
We have excellent sports facilities that you can access during the day including a well-equipped sports hall for a range of sports and our dual use football and rugby 3G Astroturf pitch will no doubt play host to many of your outdoor sporting achievements.
Since September 2021, Callywith College students’ experience has been further enhanced with the installation of our brand new gym in Fox Building with stunning views of the College 3G Astro pitch and the surrounding countryside.
The gym is available for students for free at various times throughout the day with access to cardio-vascular equipment including treadmills, cross-trainers, bikes, a rower and ski-ergo. There is also a squatting rack and bench with free weights and kettlebells, a multi-gym station and plenty of room for stretching and yoga. The gym is for all levels of ability and experience and quiet sessions are offered for students who prefer to use the facilities when there are less people in the gym and no music playing.
Gym inductions and exercise programmes are available to all users. The gym is also used by the College's sport academies including the newly established High Performance Academy where students are able to train, prepare for matches and analyse performance.
Callywith College has dedicated eating areas where a wide variety of reasonably priced meals, sandwiches, drinks and snacks are available. There are catering areas in the Temple and Garrow buildings. Details of opening times and menus can be found on the intranet. The College operates a cashless catering system.
Learning Centres (Libraries & IT Suites)
The College has two Learning Centres across the campus. These are areas where traditional printed resources sit alongside our expanding electronic provision. The open-access computers in each IT suite offer a wide range of software and there are staff available to support your use of the facilities.
Necessary books are provided by the College and must be returned in good condition. Students are asked to pay a resources deposit that will be refunded if all text and library materials are returned. The Learning Centres hold relevant collections of books, journals, DVDs and CDs, and there is increasing electronic access to books, as well as online journals and databases via the College Intranet Virtual Learning Centre.
The College has a large number of computers capable of using an extensive range of software, available for students to use on a drop-in basis. Students are expected to improve their awareness of, and skills in, information technology (IT). There are college IT champions who can advise you in your use of IT. The College has campus-wide Wi-Fi, which enables students to access the internet and complete College work using their own network-enabled device.
Many of the materials needed for your course should be available through the shop. Prices are very competitive compared to retail outlets.
The buildings at Callywith College are almost unique amongst colleges because the facilities are accessible to all students. All parts of the College may be accessed by people with limited mobility and within the College there are lifts designated for their use.
