Getting here

The main Birkbeck campus is in Bloomsbury, an area of central London in the south of the Borough of Camden. The area is the centre of academia in London and is home to many Colleges of the University of London, notable teaching hospitals and the British Museum. All of which is surrounded by the grandeur of Bloomsbury’s 17th and 18th century fashionable residential buildings and gardened squares.

The address of the principle building on the main campus is Birkbeck College, Malet Street, London WC1E 7HX.

All of Birkbeck’s Schools and non-academic Departments are based on the main campus centred around Torrington Square, or in accommodation within a short walk of the principle building. Birkbeck has also recently opened a second campus in Statford, East London, at which some staff from the Faculty of Lifelong Learning are based.
