London Life

London is renowned as one of the world’s most dynamic cities with a strong social culture. Birkbeck is situated right at the heart of the University of London’s central London campus in Bloomsbury WC1, and is surrounded by other colleges such as UCL, SOAS and the School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.

In addition to our own Students’ Union, which provides a lively focus for social activity, the University of London Union (ULU), a well-known music venue, is right next door to Birkbeck. At ULU you can meet students from other University of London colleges and enjoy a wide range of social and sporting facilities, including the largest indoor pool in central London. All this makes for a lively student atmosphere on a city-centre university campus.
