University Campuses

UEL is located in the East London boroughs of Stratford and Docklands. The largest campus is in Docklands. The Stratford Campus hosting the Cass School of Education and Communities, the School of Health Sport and Bioscience, and the School of Psychology, is centered around the 19th century listed building. The University Square Stratford campus is jointly owned with Birkbeck and is dedicated to adult students. The institution offers a number of different clubs and societies run by students, their focus ranging from arts to biking, and from causes such as International Development and LGBT rights to identity – whether national, cultural, political, or religious. Clubs and societies are one of the best ways to get to know people with similar interests and make friends.

The University of East London is one of the few universities in London offering on-campus accommodation. But you can also live off-campus, especially if you already have a family or want to share a flat with your partner.
