The Stratford Campus

The Stratford Campus is one of the University’s three sites. It is the original location where the university began and includes University House, a four-storey Grade II* listed building dating back to the late 19th century.

The University House building is rich in character and presents the Campus with a strong civic presence on Romford Road. Its Reading Room, Reference Library, Great Hall and Passmore Edwards Museum are all extraordinary facilities.

Over the last century, the wider Campus has evolved. New buildings have been added, including the Arthur Edwards Building and more recently a new Library.

We are now working towards UEL’s Vision 2028 – our ambitious 10-year strategy to become the UK’s leading career-intensive university. We are constantly adapting to ensure we are giving students from any background the skills and opportunities to thrive in the modern and ever-changing world. The Campus needs to respond again to the new demands for on-campus living by providing student accommodation and additional teaching space in modern, flexible buildings.

Over the past year we have been tidying up much of our campus and we welcome you to come and see the changes we have been making to improve our estate and the surrounding areas.
