City has been teaching students in London for over 100 years since its formation in 1894 as the Northampton Institute. The name ‘City, University London’ was adopted in 1966 to reflect the University’s long-standing relationship with the City of London. This relationship was further cemented in 2016, when City joined the University of London group and became ‘City, University of London’.

Students who attend City can enjoy being on the doorstep of some of London’s key institutions and landmarks: the Museum of London, St Paul’s Cathedral, the British Library, the British Museum, the ‘Gherkin’, the ‘West End’, and the Tower of London.
