Brunel University London guide
Unusually for a London university, Brunel's campus is almost completely self-contained which has the effect of creating a reasonably tight-knit and interacting community. Brunel’s students value the internationalism, diversity and friendliness of the campus, which includes on-campus halls of residence, Olympic-standard sports venues, great green spaces, an arts centre and award-winning business school. Brunel has really transformed its spaces over the last 10 to 20 years having undergone £400m worth of refurbishment.
Not that you have to be confined to the campus. Uxbridge tube station, only a 20-minute walk away, will take you straight into the heart of London, giving you the chance to experience big city culture without the higher rents.
Named after that great Victorian engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the university aims to put his innovative spirit and practical approach into its teaching and, as a result, its students. Its alumni include; 25 Olympic and Paralympic medallists including James Cracknell, Kate Richardson-Walsh, Iwan Thomas and Tom Aggar; BAFTA winning comedians Jo Brand and Lee Mack; actors Sophie McShera (Downton Abbey) and Archie Panjabi (The Good Wife) and creator of WAYN.com, Peter Ward.
