Location

The University is based in two campuses in the East of London. The Stratford Campus, the historic home of UEL, is in the Stratford area of London which is the site of the 2012 Olympic and Paralympics Games and is undergoing significant investment. The Docklands campus is situated on the waterfront in the Docklands area. Docklands is also home to the famous O2 arena that hosts big name acts, and Canary Wharf, the international business centre. Both campuses have excellent access to other parts of London through the underground, railway and bus links and the West End of London is only 25 minutes away.

With a history stretching as far back as the Roman Empire, London contains all that anybody could possibly wish for in a city. It is the capital of the UK and as such is the political, business and cultural centre of the country. It is by far the largest city in the UK (and one of Europe’s biggest as well) and is a truly diverse city with people from all over the world choosing London as their home. It is also home to four World Heritage Sites: the Tower of London; Kew Gardens; the site comprising the Palace of Westminster, Westminster Abbey and St Margaret’s Church; and the historic site of Greenwich. Additionally Buckingham Palace, the London Eye, Piccadilly Circus, St Paul’s Cathedral, Tower Bridge, Trafalgar Square are all within the city. For culture lovers London is also home to many famous museums and art galleries, including the National Gallery, the Tate Modern, the British Museum, the National History Museum and the British Library. The West End of London is the main shopping and entertainment area of London, although all kinds of shops can be found all over the city. There is always a wide array of entertainments on offer, form theatre performances to classical concerts. For those that prefer green open spaces, London is also home to many different parks, including the famous Hyde Park, Regents Park, St. James’s Park and Green Park, with many more across the city. For those that like sport, London has many major football teams, including Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspurs and Chelsea. The national football stadium of England Wembley Stadium can be found in the city, as can the home English rugby, Twickenham. For cricket fans both Lords (home to Middlesex C.C.) and the Oval (home to Surrey C.C.) are within London’s boundaries. One of the world’s major tennis competitions, Wimbledon, is also held in London. There is simply not limit to what one can do, but if it is not enough London is an international travel hub and students can easily explore the rest of the UK and even Europe very easily.
