Middlesex University is a public university in Hendon, northwest London, England.
The university dates back to 1878 when St Katherine’s College was founded in Tottenham, north east London. Following the addition of seven other colleges, Middlesex Polytechnic was formed in 1973 before it gained university status in 1992, becoming the institution it is today.
The university serves over 25,000 students, hailing from around 140 countries.
It comprises six schools based across north London and offering degree programmes in Art and Design, Business, Law, Health and Education, Media and Performing Arts, and Science and Technology.

The university has recently completed a multi-million-pound infrastructure project developing its lecture theatres, libraries, laboratories, and study areas.
