Calcutta House

Calcutta House is situated in the heart of the vibrant East End, just by Aldgate East station, minutes away from Brick Lane and trendy Spitalfields and Columbia Road markets.

Old Castle Street
London E1 7NT

Calcutta House is located in one of the most exciting parts of the city. It is here where you will meet London's diverse and culturally eclectic people from all walks of life. Our students at Calcutta House enjoy the local community and benefit from neighbours such as the Whitechapel Gallery, Petticoat Lane, Spitalfields and Columbia Road markets. Located minutes from Aldgate and Algate East Tube stations, Calcutta House is served by the Circle, Metropolitan, District, and Hammersmith & City lines. Mainline train stations Liverpool Street and Fenchurch Street are a short walk away.

Please use the Goulston Street entrance. 

Moving to one campus

Between 2016 and 2020 we're investing £125 million in the London Metropolitan University campus, moving all of our activity to our current Holloway campus in Islington, north London. This will mean the teaching location of some courses will change over time. 

Whether you will be affected will depend on the duration of your course, when you start and your mode of study. The earliest moves affecting new students will be in September 2017. This may mean you begin your course at one location, but over the duration of the course you are relocated to one of our other campuses. Our intention is that no full-time student will change campus more than once during a course of typical duration.

All students will benefit from our move to one campus, which will allow us to develop state-of-the-art facilities, flexible teaching areas and stunning social spaces.
