Brunel is located in Uxbridge, a compact and friendly town on the edge of West London.
Uxbridge town centre
Uxbridge is just a 20-minute walk or short bus-ride from the heart of the campus, and the town centre is packed with more than 300 shops, a multiplex cinema, two shopping malls, dozens of bars and restaurants and a £3 million nightclub which runs a number of very popular student nights.
Easy access to Central London
If you want to experience one of the greatest cities in the world, but are daunted by the high cost and bustle of living there, then Brunel offers an ideal compromise.
Our Greater London address is ideal for exploiting the best work placements and job opportunities. Not only is London the heart of the financial, commercial and creative sectors, but international organisations such as Apple UK, Coca Cola, Parexel, Xerox, Hasbro and GlaxoSmithKline are based in and around Uxbridge.
You will also benefit from receiving a London-weighted maintenance loan without the burden of central London living costs.
Travelling from London to Uxbridge is very straightforward – the town is at the end of the Metropolitan and Piccadilly lines on the London Underground, and overground trains from West Drayton Station (which is a short bus-ride from campus) take you to Paddington in just 20 minutes. You can also catch night buses home from Central London throughout the night.
The countryside on your doorstep
One of Brunel’s best-kept secrets is its proximity to part of the Colne Valley Park and the Grand Union Canal, only a 15-minute walk away. The Park consists of miles of woods, walkways, lakes, rivers and nature reserves and is one of the largest natural parks in the London area.
If you're looking for somewhere a little more peaceful than the town centre, you can make your way down to one of the waterfront pubs.
