Welcome to London
Studying at our campus in the capital allows you to immerse yourself into the busy and diverse life London has to offer. London is rightly said to be the most diverse city in the world with its endless variety of art, fashion, culture, sports, restaurants and nightlife.
With the campus situated in the heart of the capital in EC1, you will find everything at your doorstep. It’s a city steeped in history where you’ll struggle to find a dull moment away from your studies. With a total student population of around 380,000 from over 100 countries, London offers an unrivalled multicultural experience and is one of the most popular student destinations in the world.
Spread over a total area of some 65,000 square feet, the ARU London campus comprises:
- Five floors of state-of-the-art lecture theatres, seminar rooms, PC-equipped study areas and space for you to work, relax and socialise
- We have over 30 seminar rooms and theatres ranging in size from those that can accommodate up to 200 students in a theatre style seating arrangement to others that are perfect for highly interactive seminars
- Multiple computer labs
- A library housing copies of all the core textbooks, a range of relevant publications and online archives for each course. There are also dedicated areas suitable for study groups, quiet study or simply catching up on your emails
- If you need to refuel there is a wide range of supermarkets and food markets within minutes of the campus. We have dedicated areas for our students to eat and drink between classes
- Two student common rooms, one equipped with computers and printing for those who want to continue their studies on campus. The other furnished with sofas and chairs for a more relaxed environment
- Wifi is available throughout the campus
The proximity of both Chancery Lane (Central line) and Farringdon stations (Hammersmith & City, Circle, Metropolitan Underground lines + First Capital Connect, Thameslink, and Southeastern rail services) make ARU London very easy to get to from all areas of London and outside the capital.
In 2019 Farringdon will also become one of the central hubs for Crossrail, when the Elizabeth line (Crossrail) at Farringdon station opens it will be one of the busiest in the UK, connecting with Thameslink and the London Underground to provide links with outer London, the home counties, the City, Canary Wharf and three of London’s five airports.
