Facilities

Over a three year period the University embarked on a £50million plus redevelopment project, known as Future Campus, to enhance students’ social and learning experience, thereby maintaining our position as a leading modern university in London.

The Paul Hamlyn Library

This new facility at our Ealing site boasts three new floors of library resources, including 780 study spaces, 150 PCs, a group study pavilion, three PC training labs and new self-service technology for checking books in and out. The space will modernise study and borrowing, allowing students to more easily engage in both individual and group study. In addition to online databases and research tools, students will have access to books and materials 24 hours a day.

Weston Hall

This auditorium is the largest, most flexible space at the University and can be configured to suit a variety of needs.

With 225 fixed retractable seats, an additional 200 loose seats and a folding partition, this versatile area can be used as a large lecture theatre, a performance space, or as a space for careers fairs, graduation ceremonies and other events.

Blast Radio Studios

Blast FM, the official student station for UWL, broadcasts from two state-of-the-art radio studios that simulate the very latest in contemporary commercial radio operations.
