Creating vibrant campuses with cutting-edge facilities

Part of our commitment to improving student experience involves developing our campuses and providing vibrant, cutting-edge facilities to deliver the best service and experience for our students, staff and wider community.  

London Met’s Estates Strategy 2022-2031 is the blueprint for achieving these aims. Over the next 10 years, the University will be investing in exciting projects to develop our physical and digital infrastructure.  

In September 2023, London Met will be introducing the nursing division of the School of Human Sciences. Level two of the Learning Centre at Holloway campus will be transformed to become part of the Science Centre, making space for new facilities and innovative technology, and more importantly, a new exciting cohort of nursing students.  

Works commenced on 9 May 2023 and the project will be handed over to the University on 11 September 2023.

“Our whole team is doing a fantastic job in ensuring that our new facilities will be among the very best in the country and I can't wait for our students to see them.

"This is just the beginning of an exciting transformational programme of refurbishment for all of our campuses over the next few years.”

Matthew Brewster, Director of Estates

Project update

There will be restricted access to Level 1 of Learning Centre until 12 September.

Due to construction work, Level 1 study spaces are temporarily closed. Students can still access Level 1 to get books, but will need to take them to the Ground or Mezzanine levels for study or rooms LCM-18 and LCG-18 for silent study. The Study Hub on the first floor of Tower Building is also available.

The Legal Practice Collection (LPC) room and Doctoral research room may only be used if the windows are opened.

Frequently asked questions

Health Think Tank the King’s Fund, recently reported that there are now 46,000 vacant nursing posts in the UK, a record high and called for the development of a ‘sustainable supply of nurses into the NHS,’ among other interventions, to address the crisis. By creating the Division of Nursing London Met is playing its part in helping to tackle the staffing crisis in healthcare. 

London Met’s will welcome its first cohort of 30 Nursing (Adult) BSc (Hons) students in September 2023. The success of our bid aligns with our plans to adapt the estate and rapidly grow our intake of 30 nursing students in 2023 to over 400 in 2028, providing the capital with 1,500 new healthcare employees. 

Backed by a £5.8 million funding award from the Office for Students, the new spaces will provide world class facilities for the University’s first Adult Nursing (BSc) students and existing allied health areas such as physiotherapy and dietetics. They will also enable the University to develop employer-focused apprenticeships at Levels 4 and 5. 


The design 

The development offers a blank canvas to transform the space into a facility for health, providing innovative immersive technology and brand-new facilities for the new cohort of nursing and wider School of Human Sciences. Designs will incorporate London Met branding and brilliant Real London campaign, featuring our inspirational students and graduates to create a motivating, comforting and empowering atmosphere. 

The new facilities will cover the whole of level two and be accessed via the Science Centre entrance. The area will be fully accessible and future-proofed to allow us to adapt if we need to.   


New silent study spaces have been created on the ground floor (room LCG-19) and mezzanine (room LCM-18). Students can also use the Study Hub in The Junctio

Student experience and the learning environment on campus is extremely important to us. The project schedule has been carefully considered to keep disruption to a minimum, and the noisiest work will take place outside.
