Student life at INTO London

You’ll find the INTO London Centre a welcoming and stylish space with friendly staff and state-of-the-art facilities.

When you need to study, the Centre is the place to be. There’s a Learning Resource Centre with private study areas, learning materials and computers.

You’ll be able to make the most of flexible study spaces for lectures, seminars and tutorials. And, don’t forget to make use of the free Wi-Fi throughout the centre for studying or to catch up with your friends and family back home.

What food is available on campus?

Have a craving for some beef bulgogi? Downstairs you’ll find a Japanese Canteen serving bento and donburi, noodles, bipimbap, fried rice, sashimi, maki rolls and of course sushi. You can grab a bite to eat for lunch with friends or even a late dinner as they’re open till 10 pm.

Fancy sharing a pizza? Next to the Japanese Canteen is Pizza Union. Superfast 12” Italian fire-baked thin and crispy pizzas. Don’t eat gluten? No problem, order the gluten-free dough.

Coffee with your new friends

You can grab a tea or coffee in the campus café but, if you’d prefer to get a bit of fresh air and venture out, there are plenty of coffee shops nearby.
