About St James Hatcham Building

Information Notice

Please note: due to Covid-19, some of the locations may currently have safety measures in place, and be subject to reduced hours and capacity. Find out about changes on campus on our dedicated Covid-19 webpages.

This building is a former church that has been deconsecrated and converted into a creative hub for the campus.

St James Hatcham Building is used throughout the year as an exhibition and performance space, including during the annual Goldsmiths degree shows. The building still retains a lot of original features including stunning stained glass, arch decorations and traditional stonework, and so is a beautiful setting for staging immersive experiences.

It is also home to labs, workshops and classrooms for the Department of Computing. This includes Hatch Lab, a physical computing space that includes soldering and electronic equipment, liquid resin 3D printers, sewing machines and other equipment for creating wearable technology, laser cutting, engraving, and CNC milling for making bespoke electronics. It’s somewhere that students go to experiment and explore their areas of interest.

Outside the building is a memorial garden, which is still owned by St James’ Hatcham Church. Although this is a private area, the church has given an open invitation to Goldsmiths students and staff to enjoy the garden as a quiet space on campus. Visitors are asked to treat the garden with respect as a place of remembrance and reflection.
