News and Events

This page focuses on the News and Events happening in your immediate area and the rest of London. We believe that getting to know your local area and keeping up to date with the most recent goings on is one of the most important things you can do during your time at university. Striving to engage with events and activities you would otherwise not be aware of is an important part of your development during your student life, as well as keeping abreast of local news that may impact you.

From the best places to celebrate, spent a night out with friends or a day out at an exhibition, with the most important events for you to know about this academic year, we’ve got it covered.

We endeavour to provide you with the best goings on in the Big Smoke, no matter what your interests are. It is of paramount importance that no student fails to engage with their university life and with the city around them, especially when that city is one as diverse and exciting as London.

Browse all our articles relating to university and London news and events. This includes such things as seasonal parties, activities, special festivities and where’s hot and where’s not.
