Sheffield Hallam University to open new campus in London

Sheffield Hallam University will open its first satellite campus outside of Sheffield in Brent Cross Town, the 180-acre, £8bn new park town in London.

The institution will offer courses to up to 5,000 students at the new development, which is currently being built in north-west London, with the new campus expected to open for the start of the academic year in 2025 and will offer courses in subjects that are in demand in the area.

Sheffield Hallam University will occupy circa 110,000 sq ft across the lower six floors of the first commercial building at Brent Cross Town which recently obtained full planning approval. The institution will have its own dedicated entrance plus cycling and shower facilities to support sustainable transport options for staff and students.

Vice chancellor Prof Sir Chris Husbands said the site will create new opportunities and will raise the profile of the university and the city.

The site will be part of the Brent Cross Town development project which will include the construction of homes and offices linked to central London by a new railway station.

Prof Husbands said: “Sheffield Hallam is and always will be a university proudly rooted in South Yorkshire, with a long tradition of playing an active civic role.

“But we are also a university committed to engaging nationally and globally, and to raising the profile and impact of the city and the region more widely. This new development will create new opportunities for the university community, as well as for local and regional partners.”

Nick Searl, Partner at Related Argent, commented: “The University’s commitment is a milestone in the broader evolution of the development, which is gaining significant momentum and attracting an ever-widening group of partners who believe in what we are doing and want to be part of that journey.”

The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, added: “This partnership between Sheffield Hallam University, Brent Cross Town and other partners demonstrates what can be achieved when different sectors come together to invest into London’s future and help to build a better, more sustainable and more prosperous city for everyone.”
