Countdown to autumn opening of University Square Stratford

September 2013

The University of East London and Birkbeck, University of London, communities are busy moving into the brilliant new campus at University Square and preparing for the first cohort of students to come through the doors this autumn.

The £33 million development incorporates a five-storey building based around a large, light-filled atrium. In addition to the provision of flexible, daytime and evening university courses, our partnership campus offers a range of facilities and student support services, including:

  • a specialist education advice and guidance service
  • a student centre and helpdesk
  • state-of-the-art teaching facilities including a 300-seat Lecture Theatre and specialist dance and theatre performance spaces
  • the Weston Learning Centre, a space for quiet independent study and learning.

A range of staff and student orientation events were run in September to prepare everyone for work and study at the new campus. These will be followed by an official opening in early November, complete with special guests and a creative performance by students studying the performing arts at both the University of East London and Birkbeck, University of London.
