Next-generation learning space

From its 7th floor location in the Import Building, our London Campus offers modern and dynamic, flexible work and learning spaces with panoramic views of London Docklands.

The campus’s well-equipped teaching spaces can be adapted for individual and collaborative group work. The campus’s social spaces and Student Union provide the ideal spots for you to relax between studies. Students are also able to borrow or use books and journals at other university libraries in London through our SCONUL (Society of College, National and University Libraries) membership.

The campus features a wealth of calming spaces, including a water garden and lake. You can also take advantage of the on-site gym or grab a hire bike and cycle around London.

The campus is also home to a vibrant community, with regular events ranging from health and wellbeing, to networking or topical speakers.

Plenty of entertainment and relaxation options

A hidden gem for restaurants, cafes and coffee shops, you will find plenty of places to get a wide range of high-quality food and refreshments. Plus small independent shops and supermarkets nearby mean you will never be too far from everything you need to feel at home on our campus.

From small, independent music venues dotted around areas like Camden and Brixton, right up to the O2 Arena which is situated close to the campus, London has a lot to offer fans of live music. Whatever the day of the week, there is sure to be something going on. If your tastes are slightly more classical, London is home to five permanent symphony orchestras and many iconic classical music venues such as the Royal Albert Hall, Wigmore Hall and the Royal Opera House.

Students' Association

UWS has a proactive and dynamic Students' Association and all UWS students automatically become a member of the Students' Association. They are here to support you during your time at UWS and all students can be active in the Students' Association by joining a society or getting support to set one up. Societies are a great way for you to make friends and meet new people. They can also allow you to develop some of the skills that you have learned in your studies.
