For more than 130 years, we've been home to great minds with determined and unwavering ambition to improve our world through teaching, learning and research.
Our roots took hold in 1878, when St. Katherine's College first opened its doors in Tottenham. Seven additional colleges and training institutions across north London followed, coming together to form Middlesex Polytechnic in 1973.

A growing community of research excellence Middlesex has a strong research culture that values and encourages research and professional practice from all parts of the academic community, including early careers researchers.
Over the past few years, Middlesex has made a major investment in its research capacity by recruiting over 200 academic staff, including many Professors and Readers; individuals who are renowned in their fields and who further strengthen the platform on which our research and professional practice capabilities are built.
Our collaborative approach and strong industry links means the curriculum is shaped by the real-world needs of the industry, presenting many opportunities to gain invaluable practical experience and students graduate with the satisfaction of knowing that they are immediately employable.
We offer an extensive support network during your time here at Middlesex University – from childcare and counselling to financial and career advice – leaving you free to enjoy every opportunity campus life has to offer.
There are two main types of accommodation available while at Middlesex:
Middlesex provides extensive, flexible library services that can be accessed on-campus, or wherever you are in the world.
The Sheppard Library houses an enormous collection of hard copy resources, and the vast majority of our 30,000 full text journals are available online. There are also plenty of silent and group study spaces for you to use both in the Sheppard Library and the Williams building.
We are continually updating our IT facilities, to ensure that our students have the best and most up-to-date computers and software available to them. As a Middlesex student you will have access to hundreds of PCs and Macs on-campus, as well as open free WiFi in all areas of the campus so you can work on personal computers and mobile devices.
Middlesex truly is a global centre of learning. In addition to investing in creating one of the biggest and best campuses in the UK at our flagship location in London, we opened our first international campus in Dubai in 2005. The success of the Dubai campus led to the opening of a campus in Mauritius in 2009 and Malta in 2013. Students studying at all Middlesex campuses enjoy the same exceptionally high standard of teaching and facilities.
At Middlesex University, we are committed to providing a wide range of sporting activities and have developed links with a number of local community sports clubs. Students are encouraged to participate in these opportunities and to make direct contact with sports clubs.
Middlesex Students' Union, or MDXSU, is the independent voice of students on campus. MDXSU is completely democratic and lead by elected Middlesex students, and exists to represent the views and interests of all students at Middlesex University.
The Students' Union organises activities, initiatives and events for students throughout the year, while their advice team provides support and advice on a range of academic issues.
