Charterhouse Square campus entrance

At the entrance to our Charterhouse Square campus, you will find administrative and teaching facilities located in the Lodge House, Dean Rees House, Old Anatomy Building and Joseph Rotblat Building.

These include some of the original buildings of the former St Bartholomew’s Hospital Medical College, which was formerly the anatomy department.

To the side, you can see the original Charterhouse, after which the Square is named. Originally a priory, its religious life ended during the dissolution of the monasteries under King Henry VIII, when it became a Tudor mansion house. It later became a school and almshouse. It continues to serve as a small almshouse and is now open to the public as a museum.

In the middle of the square is a large grassed area known and you will find the student accommodation, Dawson Hall, to the side of this. The building also houses a café, The Shield, and a small gym.
