Our main campus, in the heart of London, is at the centre of everything

Inspiring location

Few city centre campuses in London are as compact as ours in the Elephant and Castle.

Sitting on the border of the city's Zones 1 and 2 for public transport, we're minutes from the entertainment buzz of bars, restaurants and clubs, plus many of the city's world-renowned galleries, theatres, museums and attractions.

Benefits of being easy to reach

Whether you study on a full or part-time degree course our location will matter to you. Sitting on a major public transportation hub you'll reach us easily whether it's by bus, train, London Underground, plane or bicycle. 

We're a popular choice for part-time and day release students both in and around the city limits. If you're based in Essex and want to study nursing you'll find our Havering campus, near partner Trust hospitals, equally easy to reach. Map and travel instructions for both campuses.

Experience life in a major city

London is a leading global city, has been described as a world cultural capital and in 2012 became the first to host a summer Olympics three times. Strong in the arts, commerce, education, entertainment, fashion, finance, healthcare, media, professional services, research and development, tourism and transport, it is one of the world's leading financial and legal centres. Map and travel instructions for both campuses.

Centre of things

Our main campus is a 10-minute walk from the famous centre of the arts, South Bank, and mainline stations such as London Waterloo and London Bridge, and a two-minute walk from Elephant & Castle Underground station. Stay in our halls of residence or nearby in private rented accommodation and you'll have the perfect base to explore the history and culture of this megacity.
