The University of Westminster has three campuses in the West End and one in Harrow available for hire, all characterised by a set of architecturally distinctive buildings.
A University of Westminster undergraduate student presented her research at the Society for Endocrinology’s annual conference at the Harrogate International Conference center.
As well as celebrating the University's 175th anniversary this year, it’s also our 20th year of success in commercial music, so we're particularly pleased to be involved in this year's West End LIVE festival.
Degree Shows give our students the opportunity to put learning into practice in a real-world industry setting.
Welcome to the Essential IT starter guide for new students and staff. The following are the essential things you’ll need to know to use the University IT facilities throughout your studies or work.
To access the University's library and computing resources, you'll need to log in and set up your new password.
You should do this as soon as you've enrolled and received your student ID card.
Setting up your new password is simple:
Passwords can take up to an hour to start working, so don't worry if you can't log in immediately with your new password.
For security reasons, passwords expire every 180 days – you'll receive an email, in your University email account, prompting you to change your password.
Computers with assistive technology are available at each site. Each library has a Disability Support Librarian to offer advice and assistance.
The University's Disability Learning Support team also further provide help, support and guidance.
Your University email account is provided by Google Mail.
