Map of White City

The White City Campus is the next exciting chapter in Imperial’s history.  We are creating a place for collaboration and co-location with business, academia, the local community and other partners.

By providing new, state-of-the-art facilities, the campus will expand our research and drive the next generation of scientific and technological breakthroughs. It will help enable our staff and research students to achieve their potential and work on some of the biggest challenges facing society today.

The campus will also enable us to expand our partnerships with businesses - ranging in size from start-ups to large corporate partners - and other academic bodies, as well as former students and donors. These partnerships help to translate our research into practical uses and our ideas into reality.

The campus will be an open place, which welcomes the public and reaches out to local people, organisations and schools.

The north part of the campus is already under development.  We are now sharing our draft proposals for the part of the campus south of the Westway (A40).
