The University of Westminster is in the heart of London and Harrow, and has a distinguished 170-year history. It attracts more than 20,000 students from 150 different countries. A wide range of Westminster’s courses are independently rated as excellent, and the university’s research leads the way in many areas including art and design, electronic engineering, and media. Internationalisation, employability and sustainability are key elements of the university’s vision for the future.
With central London campuses students will enjoy everything that the capital of the UK has to offer. The university is investing £60m in redeveloping its campuses at Marylebone and Harrow. It is proud of its student exhibition and gallery spaces – from P3, the dramatic underground space dedicated to the creative industries at the Marylebone campus, to the contemporary exhibition area of London Gallery West at the Harrow campus, and the gallery space at the university’s headquarters on Regent Street.
The Regent campus gym offers cutting-edge cardiovascular equipment, free weights, resistance equipment and a power plate, alongside two dedicated studios and a large multipurpose hall. This hosts a range of classes and activities including yoga, martial arts, aerobics and dance.
The university’s 45-acre sports grounds are located at Chiswick, and include synthetic turf pitches, tennis courts and natural pitches. The grounds are complemented by a main pavilion housing restaurants, bars, a social room and changing facilities. The historic boathouse on the River Thames marks the finishing point for the Oxford and Cambridge boat race. Students can get involved in the award-winning Smoke magazine and Smoke radio station
