London is home to a wide range of accommodation; from ensuite, top-of-the-range residences, to traditional student housing –there’s something to suit all tastes and budgets.

London is an incredibly diverse city where over 300 different languages are spoken daily. International students make up 33% of the total student population in the city which ensures that there is always lots to do.

For those looking for a taste of home, Golborne Road in North Kensington is known as ‘little Morocco’ and you can find plenty of Moroccan owned cafes, grocery stores and community organisations to get involved in.

Central location

The Northumbria University London Campus is located in London’s Zone 1, near Liverpool Street station. This central location is where the financial district meets the heart of London’s digital and technology sector giving you an excellent base from which to explore the city.

The Campus is a short walk from lively Shoreditch where you can find a large range of restaurants and unique boutiques. Both Whitechapel and Brick Lane are also home to many halal restaurants.

Theatres and entertainment

For those who enjoy the arts, London is full of theatres, galleries and entertainment venues.

London’s West End refers to the area of central London around Oxford Street, Charing Cross, Piccadilly Circus and Leicester Square where there are many different theatres and entertainment venues.

Travelling by public transport to this part of central London from the campus will take around 20 minutes and you will be spoilt for choice of the latest shows you can see. Most shows have evening and afternoon (matinee) performances, often tickets for matinees will be cheaper. Don’t forget to look out for smaller, local theatres which can be found across the city too as these often have new productions on with lower ticket prices.

Closer to the campus, you can also visit the Barbican Centre which includes a cinema, theatre venue and gallery space with an annual programme of events.

Places of worship

Another benefit of being such a diverse city, London caters for many different faiths with many places of worship available for you to access.

In addition to a prayer room on campus on the lower ground floor, we have also listed a small selection of mosques which are within easy reach of the Campus.

  • East London Mosque & London Muslim Centre – Whitechapel
  • East London Markazi Masjid – Whitechapel
  • The London Central Mosque – Marylebone
