Where will I be based?

Our campuses

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 last few years have also seen a major redevelopment of The Royal London Hospital, undertaken by Barts and The London NHS Trust.

Our medicine and dentistry students live at Whitechapel or our historic Charterhouse Square campus, in the City of London. This is home to many of our renowned medical research institutes, and also has accommodation for medical and dental students, a café, study and social spaces.

Our in-person campus tours are currently on hold but you can join a virtual tour of our Whitechapel and Mile End campuses.
