The University as it is today was created in 2002 with the merging of London Guildhall University and the University of North London, the first merger between two universities in the UK. Its roots, however, lie firmly in the nineteenth century with the establishment of the Metropolitan Evening Classes for Young Men in 1848.
London Met has been providing education in the heart of London since 1848. The Schools, Colleges and Widening Participation team continues the University's outreach work of over a century and a half, as part of the University's enduring commitment to social responsibility and social justice.
London Met has a vibrant research community and an active Postgraduate Research Student Society. Approximately 200 students are conducting research at London Met on either a full-time or part-time basis.
Library Services provides a wide range of resources and collections to support you in your studies. Each Library has group and silent study zones, PCs and printers.
One Campus, One Community (OCOC) is our project to invest £125 million into creating a single, unified university campus here in Islington. The project will bring a host of changes including the refurbishment of our current buildings and the creation of new ones, an investment in technology and resources to increase our ability to teach and create a better sense of community for our diverse students, and a new curriculum to ensure we're only offering high quality courses with excellent outcomes for students.
