Following the university's new Strategic Plan in 2015, its mission is: 'Transforming lives through excellent education'. London Metropolitan University is a modern and forward-looking institution built on a 170 year foundation of providing quality education in the heart of the capital.

All buildings are fully accessible by public transport and within walking distance of several stations.
