Dr Will Bridge, who has been head of the London College of Communication (formerly London College of Printing) at Elephant and Castle for 12 years, will next month take up the new post of deputy rector of the University of the Arts London (formerly the London Institute).

He will work closely with the university's rector Sir Michael Bichard on a range of major projects including overseeing the role London College of Communication will play in the regeneration of the Elephant and Castle.

At LCC Dr Bridge has managed a major campus redevelopment and brought the archives of Stanley Kubrick to the Elephant and Castle

"I am really looking forward to taking on the challenge of this new position and working with colleagues across the university to ensure University of the Arts London builds on its reputation as one of the finest arts universities in the world," says Dr Bridge.

Sir Michael Bichard added: "He has considerable experience in education management and a track record of success as the head of London College of Communication, the university's largest constituent college.

"Working closely with me and colleagues on the university management team, Dr Bridge will take overarching responsibility for ensuring that we are on track with our medium term aims, business and academic planning and the development of long-lasting collaborations across the university to the benefit of our students and staff."

• There is an opportunity to visit LCC's new media centre on Saturday 15 September as part of Open House London.
