  • UEL is equipped with the world class SportsDock (the training base of Team USA during the London 2012 Olympics) and waterfront on-campus accommodation (UEL is one of the very few universities in London to offer on-campus accommodation, and our accommodation is 45% below the London average cost of student accommodation)
  • If you're looking for a little something extra, UEL 1st year undergraduate students also receive a free Samsung tablet upon enrolment, pre-loaded with their core e-textbooks.
