The Academy has four campuses, all within the centre of Antwerp. All theory courses take place on the main campus, at Mutsaardstraat 31 (how to get there).
The Theatre Costume Programme offers a spacious studio where the first and second year bachelor students work on design assingments and actual 3D executions of costumes. One floor up we have a painting and plaster studio, where students work with fabric, make masks, work with latex, and dye textile. We have a mini blackbox, where scenography scale models or costumes can be exposed to professional theatre lighting.
There is a separate studio for third year bachelors and master students in the Bourla building. We also have our own stock of fabrics and clothing, available for students to use.
Apart from the studios and lecture rooms, the Academy offers a variety of unique spaces.
As the name suggests, the Lange Zaal is a monumental, long exhibition space (900m²) that is part of the Academy.
