In addition to the campus facilities, Central students have access to a range of University of London facilities, including the University of London Students’ Union and Senate House Library, containing three million books.

Off-campus Spaces

We will occasionally schedule classes in offsite locations; these locations have been carefully chosen and will have the necessary specs to allow for appropriate use by students. These include spaces at St Peter’s Church (a five minute walk from Central), Central Bankside (On the South Bank near The Globe) and some other select venues.
