Campus & Facilities
A city with it’s finger on the pulse of creativity
Creativity demands the right environment to flourish. Named as the World Design Capital in 2014, Cape Town offers the perfect backdrop to an educational career in the creative sphere.
A truly diverse and cosmopolitan city, Cape Town is a multi-cultural tourism hotspot that offers the perfect balance of work/life elements.
The Creative Academy campus is situated in Woodstock, one of South Africa’s most prominent creative hubs. As if that’s not enough reason for any student to want to make Cape Town their home … we also have some of the world’s best craft beer breweries, gin distilleries, food scenes and surfing hotspots. Just saying!
About our campus
After lying dormant for over 50 years, the Creative Academy repurposed and refurbished the Silo of The Old Biscuit Mill into an excellent facility – geared for a superb education experience. Today, it’s hard NOT to feel inspired when taking in the purpose-built campus and all it has on offer.
This dynamic location underscores the artistic approach of the Creative Academy in an area known for its rich diversity of creative studios, talented contemporary artists, designers and product designers.
Arts & Culture
The bustling workshops, specialist shops, cafes and markets attract thousands of visitors every week. Students are exposed to festivals and events in music, drama and film, presented by local and international performers.
The campus is easily accessible with reliable public transport. The MyCiTi bus passes the campus with the Biscuit Mill Stops of Route 261 at the entrance and just opposite the Old Biscuit Mill. Click here for the Route 261 Timetable.

The campus was developed by the Daddy’s World Group, who revived much of Cape Town’s famous Long Street and has ignited a revival of the Woodstock area. Renowned Cape Town-based architect Kristof Basson translated the vision and needs of the Creative Academy into a unique architectural statement.
