University of London
City joined the University of London (UOL) on 1st September 2016.
For our students, membership will improve their university experience. They gain access to a larger student community, numerous student societies, additional sports facilities, accommodation provision and libraries.
City continues to set its entrance criteria and examinations, award its own degrees and offer independent services to students. It remains a chartered institution, autonomous and self-governing, with its own Council, Senate, Students’ Union and other bodies.
Having been formed in 1894 as the Northampton Institute and receiving our royal charter in 1966 as The City University London, this marks a significant date in the history of City. Following City's accession to the University of London, we changed our name to 'City, University of London'.
