Student Life


LSBU HubOur Southwark campus is in SE1, right in the heart of South London. £3 billion has been invested into the area, including a £20 million new public leisure centre. It’s a unique place and is without doubt one of the most up-and-coming areas in London - so come and be part of it!

Some people think studying in London means losing the campus vibe, but that’s certainly not the case at LSBU. Our students always tell us they love the community feel we have on campus.  Everything is close together, giving our students a shared space to learn and unwind, including plenty of pubs, clubs and cafes - perfect for meetups with friends.
