Middlesex University London is a public university in Hendon, north west London, England. It is located within the historic county boundaries of Middlesex from which it takes its name. It is one of the post-1992 universities and is a member of the Million+ working group. As is the case with many former polytechnics, Middlesex can trace its history back to the 19th century, yet was not formally organised as a teaching institution until 1973.
Since 2000, the university has been reducing the number of campuses dotted around London’s North Circular Road in an effort to cut costs by consolidating most of the university at the flagship campus in Hendon. As of the 2013 academic year, its estate strategy which has cost £150 million has concentrated the university on one site in north London.
