Founded in 1898, the University of East London runs seven schools including Architecture, Computing and Engineering, Arts and Digital Industries, Cass School of Education and Communities, Health, Sport and Bioscience, Psychology, Social Sciences, Royal Docks School of Business and Law and a Graduate School.

University of East London has two modern campuses based at London’s Docklands and Stratford. The Docklands which is the largest campus has its own train station while in Stratford, the Olympic Park and Westfield shopping centre are on your doorstep. Together, they offer over £450 million of facilities including studios, labs, libraries, and the £21 million Sportsdock sports centre. Central London is less than half an hour away on the tube. The Stratford Campus hosting Cass School of Education and Communities, the School of Health Sport and Bioscience and the School of Psychology, is centred around a 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.
UEL is London’s leading uni for civic engagement. By helping students become active citizens through working on community projects or volunteering, the uni aims to equip students with real-life learning opportunities and the chance to develop transferable skills while benefitting the community.
