Central House

Central House is one of the homes of our art, architecture and design school. Our art students enjoy ease of access into London's creative and cultural quarter.

59–63 Whitechapel High Street
London E1 7PF

Internationally recognised for its excellent facilities, and described by our own Patrick Brill (AKA Bob and Roberta Smith, who teaches Fine Art here) as the "Aldgate Bauhaus", our location and facilities give students access to a world of cutting-edge equipment. Our students have full access to Cass Works, incorporating our digital manufacturing centre and housing cutting-edge equipment. Easy to get to, Central House is located minutes from Aldgate and Aldgate East tube stations, served by the Circle, Metropolitan, District and Hammersmith & City lines. Both Liverpool Street and Fenchurch Street are but a short walk away.

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.
