There are 32 boroughs in Greater London, stretching from the City of London and Westminster, to surrounding areas like Chelsea, Camden, Richmond, Hackney and Islington.

It’s big, but it’s easy to jump on a train, tube or bus to experience everything on offer – from food pop-ups to world famous music acts, free museums and West End shows.

Fantastically diverse and historical, with many industries and businesses based here to kickstart your career, London is one of the most desirable – if pricey – cities in the world.

Campus and facilities

We have two campuses – one on the bustling Holloway Road in Islington, north London, and the other in Aldgate, east London, home to our art, architecture and design courses. Both have excellent transport links and can be easily accessed from all over the city and beyond.

Holloway – Home to the majority of our courses, our Holloway campus is located right next to the Emirates Stadium and is home to our largest library as well as subject-specific facilities such as our £13m Science Centre, Cyber Security Research Centre, interpreting suite, mock courtroom, journalism newsroom and theatre performance spaces. It also houses our student venue The Rocket and two large outdoor courtyards.

Aldgate – Home to our School of Art, Architecture and Design, our Aldgate campus is located near Whitechapel Gallery, Petticoat Lane, and Spitalfields and Columbia Road markets. The facilities on campus include specialist workshops for wood, metal, ceramics, jewellery, photography, media, textiles and more.
