Cavendish Campus is a modern glass and steel building on New Cavendish Street in Fitzrovia, adjacent to the British Telecom (BT) Tower. It houses science, engineering and computer laboratories and the Policy Studies Institute.

Cavendish is the base for the Faculty of Science and Technology.

The Cavendish Campus is situated in the neighbourhood called Fitzrovia, which is close to London’s West End – placed between Marylebone, Bloomsbury and north of Soho.

A historically bohemian area, Fitzrovia has been the home of notable writers, including Virginia Woolf (A Room of One’s Own), George Bernard Shaw (Pygmalion) and Arthur Rimbaud (Une Saison en Enfer).

It has a bookshop and cafe with in-house coffee shop, which is the perfect place to meet friends and catch up with events being advertised around the University on the flat screen televisions in and around the reception area.

The campus is close to several Tube/rail stations:

  • Euston railway station
  • Goodge Street Tube station (Northern Line)
  • Warren Street Tube station(Northern Line)
  • Great Portland Street Tube station(Hammersmith & City, Circle, and Metropolitan Lines)
  • Euston Square Tube station(Hammersmith & City, Circle, and Metropolitan Lines)
  • Tottenham Court Road Tube station (Central and Northern Lines)

To the south is the world famous Oxford Street with all of its shops, bars, restaurants and theatres. In the surrounding area you'll also find great cafes, pubs and places to eat, suiting all tastes and budgets.
