About our campus

In the middle of London, overlooking one of the country’s famous Royal Parks, we are proud to have our main campus in Sussex Place, an iconic building designed in the 1800s by the same architect who designed Buckingham Palace, John Nash.

Set back from the busy London arteries that run parallel to it, our campus, which has had many extensions since the 1960s, is surprisingly peaceful and intimate, with thoughtful design creating attractive spaces for our student community

One of the newest and most ambitious additions to our campus, the refurbished Sammy Ofer Centre off Marylebone Road, was shortlisted for a prestigious architectural award in 2018. It is located in the Grade II-listed Marylebone Town Hall building and increased our teaching space by 70%.

The latest acquisition to our campus is the original RCOG building which was completed in 1960 and formally opened by Her Majesty the Queen in July of that year. We took possession of the North Building at the end of 2019 and have spent time during the pandemic to upgrade and create spaces in the building that enhance our teaching and learning experience.
