Middlesex University has five campuses providing outstanding facilities to over 34,000 students worldwide. Three of these campuses are in London (Hendon, Trent Park and Archway) and a further two campuses (Dubai and Mauritius) are overseas. Hendon is the university's busiest and most popular campus. It is set in a prime location of North West London, a short walk from Hendon Central tube station.
Since 2000, Middlesex University has invested a total of £200 million in an ambitious estate strategy. This strategy aims to reduce inefficient and widespread provision by consolidating much of the university's teaching, learning and research at the flagship campus in Hendon. This strategy will reduce costs and improve the long term sustainability of the university, whilst enhancing academic initiatives. Student numbers are also expected to increase through this investment, as the university now boasts a fabulous modern campus feel throughout with vastly improved teaching, support and leisure facilities.
This estate strategy has also been effective in supporting the university’s commitment to sustainability, with the ongoing development of environmentally friendly, flexible accommodation and rigorous monitoring and management of all buildings to reduce the university’s carbon footprint.
