According to the Complete University Guide (April 2014), we are in the top five safest universities in London. Our 24 hour security team ensure that students are well looked after both on campus and in our halls. Hendon is a peaceful, leafy suburb with a diverse population and good transport links across London.
Middlesex has four student halls close to our flagship campus in Hendon. We prioritise first year students who are travelling the furthest distance to join us. Unfortunately we cannot guarantee a place in halls for every student but there is an abundance of privately rented accommodation in and around Hendon so this is a popular choice.
We advise students looking for private accommodation to use our dedicated website, Middlesexstudentpad, where there is a database of local rooms, flats and houses for rent. Many of the private landlords using the site have been letting to Middlesex students for years.
It is important to consider what support is offered by the universities your son or daughter is considering, and how this could make a difference to their success. We offer a range of services to support students with all aspects of life as an undergraduate.
Our UniHelp service is there to help students with any general enquiries or needs and is available 24/7, and we also provide Unihub, our students' website and online guide to life as a Middlesex student.
Our Student Welfare and Advice team are on hand to advise on financial, practical and legal matters, and we also provide a counselling service. Childcare facilities are available on campus for students with children, and our Buddy scheme pairs new students with second and third years to give them extra support.
We're committed to providing an excellent service for students with disabilities or extra learning needs and as a result our Disability Service has been awarded a Times Higher Education Award for Outstanding Support for Students with Disabilities.
Our Learner Development Unit specialise in developing student skills in academic writing, language and numeracy, as well as helping with exam preparation and tailored academic support. There are also Student Achievement Officers on hand to give confidential advice and peer-to-peer support from Graduate Teaching Assistants (recent Middlesex graduates employed to help with teaching).
From September 2015 every Middlesex student will be able to download a free core textbook for each module they study. This will provide a huge cost saving to our students while also allowing them to access these digital textbooks from their own computers and mobile devices at any time. Our students also have access to free printing and photocopying throughout their time studying with us, as well as free laptop loan from several locations around campus.
Our Employability and Careers Service helps students plan their path into employment, take advantage of work experience opportunities and gain valuable employability skills. Students can book one-to-one sessions with Careers or Placement Advisors, attend workshops and learn how to conduct efficient and productive job searches.
