Middlesex University (abbrev. MU, MDX) is a university in north London, England. It is located in the historic county boundaries of Middlesex from which it takes its name. It is one of the post-1992 universities and is a member ofMillion+ working group. As is the case with many former polytechnics, Middlesex was formally organised as a teaching institution relatively recently (in 1973), yet can trace its history back to 19th century.
Since 2000, Middlesex University has been reducing the number of campuses dotted around London’s North Circular Road in an effort to cut inefficiencies by consolidating much of the university’s teaching, learning and research at the flagship campus in Hendon. Its new estate strategy which has already cost £150 million will eventually concentrate the university on three sites in north London.
In 2005 the university began rationalising its schools to focus on its strengths in business, computing and the arts.
Middlesex University essentially grew out of merger between different schools and colleges in North London. Perhaps the most prominent and one of the oldest of its constituent establishments is the Hornsey College of Art, founded in 1882. Other institutions include Ponders End Technical Institute (founded in 1901) and Hendon Technical Institute (founded in 1939). All three institutions were successfully amalgamated to form Middlesex Polytechnic in January 1973. Before becoming a university in 1992, Middlesex expanded further by joining three more colleges in north London. While continuing to grow through mergers with othereducational institutions in the 1990s, the University has also begun developing its international presence, by opening its regional offices in continental Europe. As of July 2011, it has been operating 21 such offices across the globe. Since 2000, the university launched a major restructuring programme, which, specifically, translated into a total image rebrand in 2003, the closure of a number of campuses over 2005–2011, the expansion of other campuses and generally the consolidation of the university’s activities on fewer, bigger campuses in north London.
