About London Moorgate
Our newly refurbished campus is close to both underground and mainline train stations such as Moorgate, Farringdon and Liverpool Street and is walking distance from other underground stations such as Bank and Old Street. This well-connected campus is in the middle of the finance district and is near to the biggest names in the legal industry. The area is buzzing with City workers enjoying the many pubs, bars, restaurants and cafes. It is also close to vibrant areas such as Shoreditch, Hoxton and Spitalfields with their excellent shopping, art and fashion scenes.
Moorgate is a modern and spacious campus which recently benefitted from a refurbishment which replicates the modern way of working with open plan work and recreational spaces. Having great facilities in the heart of the City means we can host prestigious guest speakers from the legal profession. This campus is also home to ULTRA, the University’s legal technology research academy, and is a technology hub from where we run a coding club, law tech fairs and exciting legal technology activities with outstanding guest speakers from the world of legal tech.
The Moorgate campus has a spacious library, spread across two floors, where there are always plenty of computers and the staff are available to help you with your research. Our newly refurbished reception area and cyber café are used for group study and are great places to socialise in between workshops and lectures.
Whilst studying at Moorgate you will have many opportunities to get involved in a rich sporting and social life and even have the option to start a society yourself.
What sets this campus apart is its location. The campus is surrounded by major law firms, banks and other financial institutions which we have close links to. Our Employability team and Pro Bono unit can give you the opportunity to work with real clients, check your CV and conduct mock interviews to prepare you for the world of work.
At London Moorgate, our tutors and staff are dedicated to helping you achieve your education and career ambitions. If you’re studying law with us, you will be able to benefit from our tutors’ expertise from their previous experience as qualified lawyers, many of them having been solicitors and partners at leading law firms.

We will provide support to help you find suitable accommodation. We have an online accommodation portal which provides helpful advice on choosing a property to rent in London and provides a property listings search for students who have accepted their place at the London Moorgate campus.
If you’d like to find other University of Law students to privately rent with, or you have a spare room in your house/flat, you can join our Housemate Hub Facebook group to chat to and make living arrangements with fellow students. Go to Facebook and search groups for ‘Official University of Law Group - Housemate Hub’.
Whether your motivation is to meet other students, relax and unwind or burn a few calories, there is something to suit everyone.
At the beginning of each academic year students are invited to apply for positions on the Student Social Committee, supported by the Student Association. Students organise and run the societies at our campuses, meaning you have the opportunity to suggest a society you’d like to take part in at the University and we’ll help you bring it to life.
Here are some of the clubs and societies that students have started and run previously at our London Moorgate campus:
- Arbitration Society, Debating, Drama club, European Law Students Association,
- International Society, Legal Tech Society, LGBT, Social Committee,
- Solidarity Society, Sustainability Society, The Bar Society, Women’s Network
- Football, Netball Club, Ping Pong Society, Tennis, Yoga
A range of social and wellbeing events are also organised throughout the year including Pimms and Cupcakes, International Friendship Event and End of Semester Social.
