About the college
Located in a quiet residential suburb on the University of East London’s Docklands campus, this campus offers views of the iconic London skyline while being right next to the river Thames. The accommodation lies right on the shores of the Royal Albert Dock and is situated by the Port of London, formerly the world’s largest port.
Just a short ride on the DLR rail brings you into the heart of the city, making it easy for excursions to any of London’s famous sites. Students can easily travel into the heart of the city after finishing their lessons, meaning that a trip to a world-class museum or iconic
landmark can be expected every day of the week.
The Docklands campus was London’s first new university building to be built in over half a century, and it really shows with the modern feel and facilities. All the rooms are single and en-suite, with access to a kitchen and communal areas. The extensive grounds boast an outdoor gym and basketball court for students to use, and plenty of space for students to sit around and relax
Students will stay in West Student Village, designed by award-winning architect Edward Cullinan in celebration of the area’s shipping heritage. The distinctive circular halls follow a nautical theme. It comprises Ailsa House, Clare House, Felix House, Jamilah House and Kwame House.
