Teaching takes place on three campuses: Mile End, West Smithfield (site of St Bartholomew’s Hospital) and Whitechapel (site of the Royal London Hospital), which are based in the City of London and east London.
A major £44 million redevelopment of the Whitechapel campus was completed in 2005. At the heart of the development is a striking new development, the Blizard building, which houses state-of-the-art facilities for students and staff: open-plan research laboratories, office space, a lecture theatre and a café.
There is also an interactive science centre, Centre of the Cell, in the Blizard building, an ideal place for local school children, parents and teachers to visit.
The next few years will also see a major redevelopment of the Royal London Hospital, undertaken by Barts and The London NHS Trust.
