Student Life in London

There are four campuses in London, which are home to three our Colleges, Westminster Business School, the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and the College of Design, Creative and Digital Industries.  Three of the campuses, Cavendish, Marylebone and Regent are in central London and one Harrow is just north-west of the city. London is one of the most exciting cities in the world and studying at the University of Westminster means that the city is your campus.

The central London campuses are all within easy walking distance of each other and enjoy enviable locations in the heart of London. As you can imagine, London is a big and wonderful city to experience University life in.  The entertainment and shopping districts are all within walking distance or a couple tube stops away.  As a global capital city there is always something happening from free exhibitions and festivals, street markets and rooftop bars to live music, art and theatre. If you need a little quiet time we have huge green areas like Hyde Park and Greenwich Park which provide great places to relax and unwind. 

Travel information

One of the first things to do is get an Oyster or Contactless card. You can top-up an Oyster online, at stations, or in newsagents where you see the Oyster pre-pay symbol. It works out much cheaper than paying for travel cards and single journeys. Full-time students, and some part-time students, can apply for a student Oyster card, which allows you to save as much as 33% on fares.  Make sure you check out your local bus routes first as the costs are much less. 

Londoners can now make as many bus and tram journeys within an hour for the price of just one ticket.  The “hopper fare” allows passengers to make unlimited changes within 60 minutes for £1.50 and is a brilliant way of getting to know the city above ground.   

Additionally, cycling can save you a small fortune. There are plenty of cycle paths in case you’re worried about safety or getting lost. Always make sure to wear a helmet.

Don’t have a bike? Register with Santander Cycles, or Boris Bikes as they are sometimes known, and you can hop on and off at handy locations across the city.
