The Rocket

On Holloway Road, The Rocket is our licensed bar and entertainment venue which has Wi-Fi, pool tables, video gaming and board games available. You can also grab a coffee, toasted panini or a snack throughout the day.

In the evenings The Rocket host events including our annual summer party and regular club nights, gigs, society activities, movie nights and charity events. Some events are even hosted in our courtyard garden during the warmer months of the year, while we also encourage you to use social media to suggest fun nights that could be hosted at the University.

Clubs and societies

You’re encouraged to take part in the clubs and societies hosted by our Student Union (SU), which runs it’s own brilliant Verve magazine and Verve radio station, written and hosted by students.

The SU has a large number of sports clubs, and welcomes requests to start a new club that is not yet running. They will support you in this process as much as possible. With such diverse societies, you’ll find all of your interests catered to.

Study areas

Study in comfort at London Met with access to a wide range of study areas. You’ll find cosy sofas nestled off corridors, and in the Holloway Road Graduate Centre. At Moorgate and Aldgate we have refurbished a number of spaces to provide even more comfortable places to socialise with your friends. The libraries, not just centres of knowledge and learning resources, are kitted out with seating and group work areas.

At our Moorgate campus, you can study in our Legal Practice Course (LPC) Room with its own special IT facilities for you to use. To enter the room you must be enrolled on the LPC programme and have a London Met ID card.

Cafés and eateries

On our three campuses you can find a selection of food and drink to enjoy in the morning, at lunchtime or before evening classes. With six outlets to choose from, our university has Costa coffee outlets and a mini-Starbucks, perfect for when you need a coffee, tea, pastry or sandwich. Costa Coffee can be found in the basement area of the Moorgate campus and the ground floor of the Tower Building of the Holloway campus. The Starbucks is in the Learning Centre.

Each campus also has their own caterers who offer deli-style food. This includes The Junction and Enrico’s Kitchen at Holloway campus, while at our Aldgate campus artisanal food and refreshments are on offer.

At the Moorgate campus you will also find microwaves in some of our eating areas, allowing you to heat your own food brought in from home. This is helpful when you are on a budget and don’t want to spend your money on takeaway food.
