About the Luton campus

Our Luton campus is located right in the heart of the town centre. It boasts our brand-new, seven-storey library, Postgraduate and CPD Centre, as well as an array of fantastic modern facilities to support each of the courses on offer at the Luton campus.

There's a Moot Court, Business Pods, sports therapy and science laboratories, an industry-standard TV studio and a gym. For our art and design students we have the Alexon building - a former fashion house based in the centre of Luton's Cultural Quarter, home to the town's thriving arts and culture scene.
