How to get here
Arrival by Underground Mile End (Central, District, Hammersmith and City Lines) and Stepney Green (District, Hammersmith and City lines) stations are both less than five minutes walk from the Mile End campus.
From Mile End station, turn left and cross Burdett Road and Mile End Road at the traffic lights, continue along the Mile End Road until you reach the College buildings on the right.
From Stepney Green, turn left out of the station, cross Globe Road and continue along Mile End Road.
We strongly reccommend using public transport, as there are no car parking facilities available on Campus. The nearest pay car park is over a mile away, and local street parking is not recommended due to strict parking enforcements in operation in the local area.
