We are guided by the ideal of a university as a centre for the development of fundamental ideas and the expansion of the boundaries of knowledge, independent of political and other transient opinions.
Professor Simon Gaskell, Principal
We have a rich and distinguished history in east London – we have been at our Mile End home since 1887, while St Bartholomew’s hospital was founded in 1123.
From working with local schools to advising government, we are committed to making our research count and to serving our community.
